Want to learn more about successful soil fertility management?
Higher yields, lower costs, fewer pest and disease problems, and
irrigation savings are reported effects of 'feeding the soil and not the plant'.
In response to demand from growers and consultants who want to learn
more about the benefits of our program, we offer short courses periodically
during the year. These courses are built upon the Albrecht principles of
soil-based fertility management, and are at 'introductory', 'intermediate', and 'advanced' level.
In addition to the public seminars, we can also conduct on-farm consultations or private training
sessions tailored to meet the specific needs of your organization.
Kinsey Agricultural Services' public courses for 2018 with contact details

Introductory Soil Fertility Course
June 5th - 6th, 2018
Healthy Soil, Fruitful Results
"Because of the increasing interest in and need for looking at our soil differently, N-xt Soil Services has done much work in research and development over the past years to turn this into a practical model. Partly as a result of following training courses in America and the further development of experiences in Western Europe, N-xt Soil Services, as an official consultant of the Kinsey-Albrecht Soil Analysis, has been more and more often in the spotlight."
"Partly due to the increasing demand, we have managed to bring Neal Kinsey to the Netherlands. Who would be better suited to explain this “alternative look” on soil fertility than the founder and developer of the Kinsey-Albrecht Method himself? By means of a two-day course we want to give everyone the opportunity to hear him. During this course, Neal Kinsey will share his knowledge and more than 40 years of experience with you. He will discuss how he perceives the soil and applies Dr Albrecht's rules in his method. He will explain why this system has been developed and why it can be applied to any soil type and crop."
Here is an overview of what Neal Kinsey will speak of in his presentation each day:
Day One: June 5th
- We will start with an introduction of the concept and the information offered by soil analysis. This introduction provides the basis for understanding the recommendations we make with regard to each element. We will explain how this method can be used to measure the positive and negative effects of different fertilizers and additives. We will also discuss the effects they have on soil fertility and plant growth. If there is time, the correct sampling methods will also be explained. All in all, on Day 1 we will lay the foundations necessary for the continuation on Day 2.
Day Two: June 6th
- We will start Day 2 with an explanation of Calcium and Magnesium, which is essential to be able to understand pH, Potassium and Sodium. We will do so by means of useful terms and principles, on the basis of practical examples. This is followed by a discussion of primary elements like phosphate, sulphur and nitrogen, and if time permits, Neal will conclude the second day with micronutrients.
- After this two-day course you will have a better knowledge of a system that can restore the balance in your soil: a method that identifies exactly the right nutrients for correcting the soil structure, so that the “house” in which the soil biology develops is rebuilt.

World Wide Ag Conference
Wedneday, July 25 - Friday, July 27, 2018
Hear from international and farmer speakers about options for lifting the capability of your operation's production platform -- that is, your dairy and pastoral livestock, soil, pasture, crops, and water.
Top-performing farmers -- whether sheep/beef, dairy, or cropping -- are looking for a step change, as they recognize that simply throwing "more" in agriculture is not the way forward. A considered and sophisticated approach is needed. Take the time to understand your production platform, so you can optimize its potential.
Here is an overview of the speakers and what they will be discussing:
- Dr. Don Huber - The Role of Nutrients in the Plant and How They Protect It From Specific Diseases
- Dr. Kevin Bradley - The Relationships Between Weed Incidence, Soil pH, and the Nutrient Levels
- Peter Eggers - Role as a Farmer and Albrecht/Kinsey Consultant, What He Has Achieved With Increased Yields, Profit, and Improvements
- Bob Perry - Biology of the Soil Nitrogen
- Bill Brush - The Effects Rain Water and Irrigation Has On Calcium in the Soil
- Michael Smith - Farming Under the Albrecht/Kinsey Program and Information on Latest in Agricultural Technology That His Son is Overseeing
- Dr. Robert J. Kremer - Soil Microbiology and How Soil Nutrients Affect Soil Biology
- Hal Crain - Benefits Gained on Walnut Opteration Using the Albrecht/Kinsey Program
- Tim Reinbott - He Is Director of Field Operations at the University of Missouri. Meets Practical Problems and Management by Understanding the Problem and Solving It Through Dedicated Research
- Barbara Sexton - How Does One Go About Reversing Abuse of the Land? What Twenty Years of Farming and Using the Albrecht Program Has Achieved.
- Rob Sutherland - Observations of Experimenting with Lime and Trace Elements, Rob's Own Success, and Success of Other Farmers He Consults To Who Are Using the Albrecht/Kinsey Program.
- Dr. Jerry L. Hatfield - Soil Properties in Water. Water Infilitration and Holding Capacity and How Management Affects This.
