Farms, gardens, ranches, orchards & vineyards, 50 states and 75 countries. With over 40 years working with hundreds of soil types, his expertise in understanding soil chemistry is unmatched. Neal Kinsey was trained and certificated as an agronomist by Dr. William A. Albrecht, Professor Emeritus of Soils, University of Missouri/Columbia. William A. Albrecht PhD, Chairman of the Department of Soils at the University of Missouri, was the foremost authority on the relation of soil fertility to human health and earned four degrees from the University of Illinois. His method of balancing soil minerals creates nutritious produce, healthy animals and healthy people. Vegetables under his program are superior in taste and storage. All farmers in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina are invited to attend this 3 day workshop focused on understanding soil minerals, the role they play in soil biology, soil nutrient holding capacity, macronutrient function, and micronutrients function.
