 Virtual Program Recertification Credit Protocol:

  •  Participants will pre-register for the meeting, and will be required to enter their Pesticide Applicator ID # when registering if they wish to receive NYSDEC credit. Each employee will need to register for each zoom session separately, and watch from their own unique device to receive credit. 
  • Prior to the meeting date, participants seeking NYSDEC recertification credits will be required to email or text a fully legible image of their pesticide applicator ID to Elisabeth Hodgdon, which must match the ID # they registered for the meeting with to verify their identity.
  • At the start and end of the meeting, the webinar host will enter a Qualtrics survey link into the zoom chatbox. Growers seeking credits will need to click on the link, and then enter their full name and DEC ID number into the survey. These surveys allow us to verify grower identity, and provides the sponsor a time stamp of when growers submitted their response. This will allow the sponsor to determine if growers entered the meeting room on time, and remained signed on throughout the full meeting.
  •  A course attendee roster, listing all of the applicants who successfully met the above conditions, will be filled out by Elisabeth Hodgdon, and will be emailed to the New York DEC Bureau of Pesticides Management.

Management Practices for High Organic Matter Soils

We are exploring management practices for vegetable farmers with high organic matter soils. These soils are usually found in urban growing areas as urban farmers typically grow in imported soil mixtures that have been constructed over time and in high tunnels where leaching events are limited. In both cases, we see that soil pH and calcium levels can increase due to alkaline irrigation water and with grower inputs such as high levels of compost and/or fertilizer. We commonly see limited plant nutrient uptake due to high soil pH. We have produced four "Management Practices for Urban Soil Health" case studies sharing project updates in our urban cover crop, pH adjustment, and bulk density adjustment work. In each case study, we are looking at the effect of the management practice on soil and crop health.
