    Two Degrees of Separation...

    Two early growing districts in Washington’s lower Yakima valley. But as you can see, a couple degrees can give a distinct early advantage. Once #soil temperature warms above 45F soil fertilizer applications can begin. Using a commercial polyphosphate fertilizer will not become available for plant use until the soil warms to 63-68F, but “plant-ready†#orthophosphate isn’t temperature dependent and promotes strong, uniform growth and also benefits #Bloom activities.

    When plants awaken from dormancy, like a grizzly bear coming out of hibernation, they are hungry and thirsty...Feed them! But the right nutrition, in the right form will give you a competitive edge, regardless of the crop. #SoilMatters

    Chelan cherries at First White stage.

    Bloom is within days!

    Now is the time to get your #pollen delivered for timely applications. Getting #bloom treatment materials is also important.

    This stage of development requires a large amount of energy. While #soil temperatures are still below the 63-68F critical range, energy is supplied via plant-stored carbohydrate reserves. These come primarily from stored photosynthate surpluses.

    So, the better plants photosynthesize during the growing season, the better equipped they will be for dormancy and bloom the following year.

    Want a good #bloom and crop set? Feed the crop rightly throughout the growing season for better plant and crop health.

    The #soil temperature has warmed enough to begin soil fertigation treatments. #CCAtip #soilmatters #WAAg #yakimavalley

    "Programs provide a wide variety of funding for farmers who adopt environmentally friendly practices including: natural vegetation buffers along creeks; drip irrigation systems; no-till farming to slow soil erosion; and nutrition management for dairy cows, to reduce the amount of methane gas they produce."

    "Such practices produce environmental benefits, but too often the money is spread too thin or not targeted to the worst problems, according to the environmental group."
