Soil season has arrived! This past month was spent collecting soil samples from both the spring-planted and post-wheat cohorts for analysis.
Fields that were finishing up with spring grazing were sampled down to 6 feet for moisture, and will be analyzed for other soil health and fertility indicators including soil carbon and nitrogen, bulk density and aggregation. Check out the video file below to see the hydraulic probe in action.
Fields that are preparing to plant the cover crop mix for the fall (or have already planted) were sampled for baseline soil moisture and fertility.
