Growers need and use a lot of tools. It is a truism that the only thing more expensive than having the right tools is not having them. At Earthwise, we want to be part of the solution – providing learning tools, inputs and resources that are handy and available in real time. In this section of our site you will find information about soils, water, plants, nutrients, and equipment that can directly impact the farm’s bottom line. You will also find information about the relationship between all of the above to healthy plants and to pest problems, including insects, diseases, and weeds. We will be publishing our take on a lot of the science and art behind growing crops as well as links to other articles, papers, and sites that we have found enlightening. Some of what we publish here will be solicited from other companies, consultants, farmers, and friends that we have grown to respect in the industry. Resourced articles will be signed by the authors or some other form of attribution or citation will be noted. We welcome feedback from interested parties. Learning never stops. Whenever we think we are sure about something in agriculture, we probably better think again!
