VAS’ Agronomic Consulting division talks research
Chuck Bolte, Manager, Agronomic Consulting, talks with WPVGA (Wisconsin Vegetable Growers Association) about VAS Laboratories’ work on water flow and phosphorus monitoring research in the Antigo Flats, a potato and vegetable production area in Wisconsin.
For several years, the team has been awarded grants for their project, which Bolte hopes can equip growers with the power to make the best management decisions for the future. The project began in 2016 when WPVGA awarded the group with a grant to build a spatial database of the PI (Phosphorus Index) for all the potato growers in the area. Today, the project focuses on looking at soil health as a driver to reduce nutrient runoff and leaching.
Check out WPVGA’s interview with Chuck Bolte to learn more about the project, and how the team is using it to help growers make sustainable farming decisions for the future. https://bit.ly/3BQJ1Xd
