Plant Sap Interpretation & Application Workshop

June 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Paicines Ranch Learning Center is excited to welcome Scott Wall and Jenny Garley of NEW AGE Laboratories in leading a half-day farmer workshop on June 28!

Sap analysis is a powerful tool for growers wanting to accurately gauge their crop health and nutritional needs during the growing season. This workshop will provide the foundational understanding on how to use sap analysis to grow healthy and highly productive plants.

Scott Wall and Jenny Garley are the President and the Chief Science Officer at New Age Laboratories – one of only three labs offering sap analysis in the US. They will share what they have learned through years of experience and from providing sap analysis as a service to growers around the world.

Content will include explanation of what sap analysis is, how it differs from tissue analysis, and how nutrient mobility in plants allows us to identify nutrient deficiencies well before physical symptoms arise. Participants will learn about the synergies and antagonism between anions and cations, macro- and micro-nutrients, and how sap tests help to determine if their plants are using nitrogen efficiently. In addition to basic sampling protocols, the session will also include a review of sap analysis reports so that everyone can hone their skills in interpreting the results and what fertility adjustments would be reasonable to consider.

The session will conclude with Q&A, followed by a delicious, locally-sourced lunch by Paicines Chef Carlos and Chef Nancy after the workshop concludes.
