Evaluating Organic Inputs for Improving Soil Health in Blueberry Production

In this webinar, Shikha Singh of Oregon State University will discuss the suitability of different locally available organic materials to improve the quality of sandy and calcareous soils of eastern Oregon and Washington and improve organic blueberry production. More specifically, we are looking at impacts of different organic amendments on physical, chemical, and biological health of soils, which are instrumental to sustainably manage soil resources to promote future cultivation. Results from this study will not only help in determining best management practices and optimal amendments for improving soil health but also increase resource use efficiency by utilizing the locally available waste materials which will help foster grower profitability.
