Paul Deckard: Recycling NPK and Trace Minerals MP3

Paul Deckard


Everything on the Earth experiences cycles: nitrogen, potassium, phosphorus, oxygen, sulfur, carbon, water, just to name a few. Additionally, typical laboratory soil analyses actually miss a large portion of all the plant nutrients that are in soils. By using a different method of soil analysis, Paul will demonstrate how the use of natural and synthetic fertilizers over the years has contributed to enormous soil reserves of plant nutrients that are complexed, or tied up, within the soil matrix and don’t show up on standard analyses. By honoring nature’s laws and understanding natural cycles, farmers can tap into these soil reserves without increasing fertilizer inputs.
