Managing soils and using organic fertilizers to achieve high Brix forage

Starting with the Soil mineral Base Saturation levels and a plant diverse crop or diverse cropping rotation, the aim is to produce a fertilizer plan that will stimulate and multiply soil microbes to mobilise soil minerals, absorb nitrogen from the air and produce large amounts of high integrity forage with a high Brix level.
