Greetings,
   I recently attended Neal Kinseys Advanced Soil Fertility workshop in PA and would like to pass on a few things that would be of interest to some in the group. Neal is a world wide soil consultant who works with all kinds of crops. Grapes,berries,corn, timber,pasture,beans,tomatoes.......
   He works with very large berry growers in California. He says when he keeps the boron levels in the soil at 1.5ppm and the copper at 12-15ppm rust is no longer a problem. This is of course using his labs results,however, most labs are fairly consistent with the trace elements. This cant be said for major elements. There is much variation between different labs.
