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.

Presentation by Bill Brush, with specific topics from Neal Kinsey
Want to learn more about building soil fertility and how water affects the use of the Albrecht Soil Fertility System? This is the course to consider.
Bill Brush and Neal Kinsey will be teaching an intermediate soil fertility course, designed principally for confirming the use of the Albrecht/Kinsey System from the standpoint of Bill's degree in agricultural chemistry, and the principles he uses in presentations to consultants and farmers regarding what he has learned and now uses to explain how the Albrecht program works.
Bill Brush will deal with the program in general and Neal Kinsey will take an hour or two each day to deal with some special topics like extreme excesses, cation displacement, very sandy soils, etc.
Here is an overview of what Bill Brush will use in his presentation each day:
Day 1: How the Nutrient Balance of the Albrecht/Kinsey Model Affects Plant Processes
Day 2: There is Magic in the Soil: Microbiology of Soil and Nutrient Mineralization
Day 3: How Does Water Affect the Albrecht/Kinsey Soil Balancing and How to Calculate What Additional Amending Will be Needed to Obtain Optimal Soil Levels
We can comfortably accommodate 75 in the meeting room. We expect to be full. Only a paid registration assures a seat, and those who wait too long may be disappointed to learn we are already full. Registration must close on Friday, November 21, to allow enough time to prepare and print the materials needed for handouts in notebook form, and consequently there can be no registrations accepted after this date. The handout material will only be available to those who attend the course.
$1400 (includes course, room, breakfast, lunch, and am/pm breaks)
Optional Farm Tour: $100 (Vineyard, Grass based Dairy, and farms with cover crops)
