Many growers have their attention set on harvest preparation and finishing this growing season strong. However, fall is an important time to make plans for the next growing season.

Fertilizer and nutrient inputs are some of the largest crop input expenses for growers today.

Soil testing is the best way to monitor pH and organic mater, and levels of phosphorus and potassium.
