Digging into soil science with OSCIA's Angie Straathof
Almost all crops begin in the soil. Soil is a complex system and managing it is similarly complex, with no one-size-fits-all approach. But there are some commonalities. What are the biggest challenges and opportunities in soil management?
In this episode of AgAnnex Talks, Fruit & Vegetable editor Alex Barnard chats with Angie Straathof, program director with the Ontario Soil and Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA). She discusses how she came to soil science, OSCIA's programs and initiatives, and the importance of maintaining or increasing soil organic matter (SOM) levels.
