What you want is to achieve a high fertilizer use efficiency. In other words, achieve the highest yields using the least amount of fertilizer. This is desirable and achievable, and our session will help you get there.

In this session, you will learn:

  1. The best sources of fertilizer
  2. How to calculate fertilizer amounts when using drip irrigation 
  3. If the advantages and disadvantages of organic and synthetic fertilizers.
