OLP300 - Advanced Concepts in Growing Food

While we currently have plenty of food, it is so lacking in vital nutrients that diseases, and health care costs, run rampant. Degradation of the world's agricultural soils are resulting in diminishing capacity to support human food production, where increasing toxic chemicals, that deplete the soil's nutrients, also decreases our food's nutrients. This course focuses on replenishing and re-balancing soil nutrients with the goal of growing not just food, but complete nutrition, for ourselves and our animals. Topics include: the complexity of nutrient uptake by plants, soils test interpretation, fertilizers and fertilizer calculations, and rapidly growing field of energetic solutions.
