Using a Brix Refractometer for Pasture and Forage Management

August 30 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Imagine an easy-to-use field tool that will help you predict:

· The nutrient density of your forage

· Shelf-life of standing forage and the hay you cut

· Plant calcium status and boron deficiency

· Weed problems

· A plant’s susceptibility to pest pressure

· The likelihood of frost damage

This tool is called a portable Brix refractometer. It measures light refracting through dissolved sugars in plant sap and indicates the nutrient density of the plant. With a few instant readings each day you’ll start gaining insight that can take your forage and grazing management to the next level.

In this webinar Kara Kroeger, Regenerative Practice Consultant at Grassroots Carbons, explains how to improve your skills as a chlorophyll manager by understanding the ins and outs of using a Brix refractometer to improve your pasture management.
