About twenty farmers and University research partners who have been involved with the CIG Project, Securing the future of highly productive organic no-till vegetable production systems in California (CA), that started in 2018, took part in a two-hour televideo conference discussion that looked at initial findings from soil sampling that was done at the end of 2018 at all participating farm sites. The discussion provided an opportunity for project partners to look at and discuss the significance of a whole suite of soil property determinations including pH, EC, carbon, aggregation, color, and phospholipid fatty acids. A summary of the initial data and results of these baseline samplings is available here. The next round of project farm sampling will be conducted at the end of 2020.
