Episode 250. Practical Steps for Reducing Synthetic Fertilizer Use

For more than 35 years, the National Center for Appropriate Technology’s ATTRA Sustainable Agriculture program has been helping farmers and ranchers grow nutritious food and operate successful businesses without synthetic fertilizer. Now, NCAT has released a new toolkit with trusted and practical resources for farmers who want to transition away from the use of synthetic fertilizers.

In this episode of Voices from the Field, NCAT Communications Director Emilie Ritter Saunders speaks with Sustainable Agriculture Specialists Nina Prater and Lee Rinehart about the new toolkit, and the easy-to-follow steps for transitioning away from synthetic fertilizer use.
