This a MAJOR issue for vegetable growers in S Florida
Elizabeth Malek

Irrigation water is high in calcium and has a high pH
Elizabeth Malek
02:05:13
We need studies to look at available phosphorus pools vs. unavailable phosphorus pools. No one is working on this in the entire state.
Elizabeth Malek
02:09:16
Phosphorus, BMPs and water quality should be the number one priority in the state
Gene McAvoy

and citrus
Elizabeth Malek
02:15:58
It has already been proven that Mehlich 3 extracts unavailable forms of phosphorus
Elizabeth Malek
02:18:26
We need integrated research which requires funding

02:21:15
If IFAS can arbitrarily change from Mehlick I to Mehlick III, then they can just as easily change back or establish another extracting method to better solve problems

From Kate English to Everyone: 11:49 AMDid the Research Coordinating Group review the RFP that OAWP published seeking research proposals a few months ago?
Wesley's iPad (2)
02:24:06
Where and when?
Elizabeth Malek
02:24:30
Maybe a collaborative approach with research across regions in the state would be more likely to receive funding. Fighting for our region of SWFL seems like we get no where.
