In North America, standards for soil health and fertility in organic systems are regulated at the federal level. But for those transitioning to organic farming, it can be difficult to know how to meet those standards without access to the same toolkit they used while practicing conventional farming. Join us and moderator Chris Boomsma in this last installment of our four part series on transitioning to organic farming, where we discuss tips and trends to organically manage soil health, fertility, and biology, as well as some closing thoughts from series moderator Dr. Erin Silva.
