The No-Till Flowers Podcast

Jan 17, 2024

Guest Bryant Mason of Soil Doctor Consulting returns to the podcast for another lively conversation about organic nutrients with host Jennie Love.

If you haven’t already listened to Episode 29 in Season 3, stop this one now and go back to listen to that one first.  In Episode 29, we introduced Bryant to the flower farming community and we had a dynamic conversation about nutrient balancing in living soils.  Bryant, a certified agronomist for organic growers and an orchardist living in Colorado, has an exquisite knack for making complicated sciency topics sound simple and do-able. 

In this whirlwind tour de force we cover: 

  • Gypsum applications 
  • Analysis of WCA (homemade calcium input in Korean Natural Farming)
  • Foliar Feeding Best Practices
  • Detering Pests by Choosing the Right Organic Fertilizer
  • EC/Salts
  • Amino Acids and other Nitrogen Sources
  • Orchard establishment and management
  • Soil Paste Testing
  • A Recipe for Biannual Soil Drench to supercharge your crops 

This conversation with Bryant was broken into two episodes since it was full of so much information. So be sure to come back for the second half in Episode 38.
