Date: Wednesday, March 23, 2022

Time: 12:00 PM Central Daylight Time

Duration: 1 hour

Just like growers, soil has a love-hate relationship with fertilizers. While they provide essential nutrients for plant growth, fertilizers can at times pose a threat to soil health and longevity by disrupting the natural balance of nutrients and microbes. However, with fertilizer prices on an aggressive climb, there has never been a better time to take a closer look at the earth beneath our crops and reap the benefits of a healthy soil microbiome. By focusing on proven strategies that help cultivate a healthy soil microbiome, growers stand to benefit their bottom line, all while decreasing their reliance on expensive fertilizers. Join us as we dive into the science behind activating soil microbes to unlock nutrients and improve profitability, and hear from a 3rd generation grower about how these practices are shaping up on her Ohio farm.

Attend this webinar and:

  • Discover new ways to stimulate healthy, active soil microbes to improve nutrient efficiency and maximize yields or reduce nitrogen input without sacrificing bushels.
  • Learn the latest easy steps that can supplement management practices to unlock more of the nutrients that are already in the soil.
  • Find out how microbiome activators like SOURCE® wake up soil microbes and give plants access to more nutrients, including nitrogen and phosphorus.
  • Discover how Sound Agriculture’s Performance Optimizer can easily guide precision placement based on your soil parameters.
