Yesterday Bob & Leda Muth kindly hosted the Rutgers Sustainable Ag students for a tour of their farm operation and soil practices. Bob’s farm has demonstrated profitable results from applying municipal collected un-composted waste leaves to Coastal Plain soils. The practice dramatically improves soil fertility, soil health, and cuts fertilizer and fungicide expenses.
