Learn about succession plantings, multiple options for microbial inoculations, and simple field trial designs through this field day at Synergia Ranch! At this field day, led by Synergia’s farm manager Dr. Starrlight Augustine, we’ll work together to plant fall succession crops and apply beneficial microbes using a range of approaches, from Johnson-Su seed inoculations to injections of compost extracts and compost teas—all in the context of a simple field trial approach that you can adapt to evaluate practices at your farm, ranch, or garden.

This workshop will be followed by a harvest and data collection workshop on Saturday, November 12, where we’ll gather data and learn how to assess the field trial results.
As always at SRA events, this field day includes a free, grant-funded lunch where you’ll get the chance to make and strengthen connections with other people in the sustainable agriculture sector.
