Cal Poly Healthy Soils Project presents this free morning demonstration field day at Tablas Creek Vineyard. As a participating vineyard in the Cal Poly Healthy Soils Project, Tablas Creek is serving as a demonstration site to investigate the links between soil-building practices such as no-till and grazing of cover crops, and measures of soil carbon, water holding capacity, and greenhouse gas emissions. During this event, Tablas Creek vineyard managers will discuss their unique soil management strategy, Cal Poly researchers will discuss the preliminary findings of their field trials, and additional guest speakers will discuss approaches to soil management, as well as its implications for grape quality.
