Choosing and Using Fertilizers in the Yard and Garden
Emma and Nate are joined by researcher Becky Sideman to talk fertilizers for the yard and garden, covering how to choose the appropriate fertilizer, and how and when to apply them. They also take on common misconceptions and give practical advice you can put to use in your gardens, lawn and landscape.
UNH Cooperative Extension’s Vegetable & Fruit team, together with a group of undergraduate and graduate students at the University of New Hampshire, conduct research on vegetable and fruit crops. While the team does much of their work at theNH Agricultural Experiment Station in Durham, NH, they are located throughout NH and their research project topics are driven by the needs of NH growers. The team believes that using effective growing practices for our region (including new varieties, new crops, and season extension strategies) can help farmers diversify, improve yields, and improve crop quality. Many of their integrated research and extension projects focus on high-value specialty crop production systems and methods of extending the growing season (e.g. season extension). They offer an up-to-the-minute snapshot of what we're up to on Instagram at unh_sidemanlab.
