This event is part of the University of Illinois Extension weekly educational series for the small farm community. This series provides practical knowledge on emerging topics that advance local food production in Illinois. Online presentations will give small farm producers a look at how leading practices in production, management, and marketing enable operations to improve profitability and sustainability. For decades the Saturated Media Extract (SME) test has been a routine method used for greenhouse bench crops growing in soil-less mixes and also in irrigated arid production systems. SME represents an option to monitor and manage nutrients at the water-soluble level.
