Digestate Applied!

The past two weeks I continued on preparing the trial plots for digestate and fertilizer application. Soil temperatures were closely monitored over the past two weeks. On Friday, soil temperatures were taken and averaged at approximately 11 ºC. Soil samples were taken and sent to JHG Laboratories for microbiological analysis. Digestate was applied to all three farms. Digestate was applied by trailing shoe at 4km/hr at a rate of 3500 gallons/ha.
