Interpreting soil sample reports workshop will be held from 10 to 12 p.m. Saturday, April 7 at the Frank Bratt Agricultural Center, 3542 Turner Rd., Jamestown.

It is presented by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County’s Agriculture Program as part of their 2017-2018 L.E.A.F. (Learn. Empower. Achieve. Farm.) Workshop Series.

In this workshop, led by Katelyn Walley-Stoll, farm business management educator with Cornell Cooperative Extension, participants will have the opportunity to learn more about soil sampling. Topics to be covered include why it’s important to sample soils, how to take a soil sample, the difference between a pH test and a full analysis soil sample and how to read a soil sample report. There will be a hands-on portion for this workshop that will include a demonstration on using the Cornell pH Test Kit, practice examples on how to determine fertilizer and lime application rates based on a sample report and how to determine soil type.

Participants for this workshop have the option of paying either $5 (covering just the course materials) or $18 (which will include a voucher for a free soil sample at a $20 value).

Pre-registration is required prior to the workshop to allow for adequate time to prepare printed resources and materials.

You can register online, email, or call 716-664-9502, ext. 202.
