Nutrient Balancing in Fruit and Nut Trees

Nutrient Balancing in Fruit and Nut Trees
September 10, 2017 02:17PM
Greetings from Oregon,
I have several acres of certified organic fruits and nuts (apples, Asian pears, hazelnuts and chestnuts), and recently received results from mid summer tissue analysis. There were some concerning results with regard to low levels of some nutrients and because of the approaching harvest season, I am wondering how and when to address some of these concerns. Does anyone have recommendations of a nutrient/soil consultant that I could contact?

Thanks for any help,

Hi Rachel,

You are very close to OSU and they have a Soil Science Team there that is top notch. They offer extension outreach and I would bet they would be interested in assisting your efforts.

Good luck!

ps Post up the PDFs of the results you received. I am sure our members and guests here at the HON would like to see them.
