Drought to Deluge: Soil Nutrient Management

Virtual Gardening Series hosted by Travis County AgriLife

March 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

The Drought to Deluge free, virtual  gardening series continues on March 2nd at 10 am to 12 pm with the Soil Nutrient Management webinar hosted by Travis County AgriLife.

Join Dr. Jake Mowrer, Assistant Professor, and Extension Specialist at Texas A&M University, to learn soil basics. Soil and soil nutrient management are the basis for successful gardening during drought or deluge. Soil provides the structure to store water and nutrients for plants to root and grow.  Dr. Mowrer will cover soil’s physical and chemical properties, nutrient uptake, testing, and fertilizers. Space is limited to 100 attendees.  The programs will be recorded.  All attendees must register to either attend the live virtual seminar or view the recording.
