Moderated by Sarah Weber and featuring Dr. Jeffrey Endelman, Dr. Walter Goldstein, Dr. Jose Ma. Anguiano Cardenas, and Dr. Jose Manuel Palma Garcia
In this workshop, researchers from the United States and Mexico will present three research projects involving biodynamic preparations, with time for questions and discussion. Dr. Walter Goldstein will describe results of a long- term trial comparing conventional, organic and biodynamic methods, with emphasis on yield stability and root growth. Dr. Jeffrey Endelman will present a collaborative project looking at the chemistry and microbiology of horn manure preparation in relation to sensory observations. Dr. Anguiano and Dr. Palma will describe a project in which Mexican lime tree orchards afflicted by Diaphorina citri and Huanglongbing (Citrus Greening Disease) are treated with tree paste and biodynamic preparations 507 and 508, thus allowing the trees to maintain fruit production.
