I am an organic vegetable grower and need to better manage my crop from a nutrient basis. I do soil and plant analysis, but do not always have the tools available to correct imbalances. Hopefully this position would help in this regard.

This position would be a great resource for UC farm advisors and would address a critical statewide need for more refined information on nutrient management for vegetable crops.

Hard, accurate data is hard to come by for a farmer, unless he seeks advice from fertilizer companies who have an agenda to move product. I have farmed for 41 years in California and lean heavily on the UC system for unbiased information. With regulations increasing every year on farming practices, a reliable source for nutrient information is indispensable for my operation.

Nutrient management in vegetable crops is critical as we face challenges with nitrate leaching issues into groundwater. Improving vegetable quality and production efficiency with plant nutrient management is a major focal point for producers and the industry.

Nutrient management in vegetable crops is extremely critical in today's environment. Fertilizers are increasingly expensive and we must be prudent in our management of nitrates, particularly in regards to groundwater contamination. This position is critical in continuing the advice and information flow from industry professionals to growers.
