Options for Improving Soil Fertility on Smallholder Farms
Presented By: Tom Thompson
Event: ECHO Asia "Improving Lives" Agriculture & Community Development Conference (2017-10-04)
It is often a problem in tropical soils farmed by smallholders that the soil is nutrient-depleted and acidic, costing the farmer more money and yielding less valuable crops. In an attempt to overcome this, Dr. Tom will discuss different ways of evaluating important soil properties and thus options for improving soil pH and nutrient status using techniques that are appropriate for smallholder agriculture.
