Bonus Session: Carbon - Not Just a Credit Carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen are the three basic nutrients required for plant life. These are all nonmetal elements that are available to plants through air, water, and the soil. Carbon is an essential part the photosynthesis cycle. Recently, carbon markets have created a new buzz in the world. This session will not specifically focus on carbon markets, but the agronomic application of applying carbon-based products to plants. This carbon chat will explain how carbon cycles in the environment and how it interacts with plants. Information on water- and nutrient-holding capacities of this element will also be discussed, along with carbon-based products tested in Beck’s Hybrids’ Practical Farm Research (PFR®) trials.
