About The Event
Join us for a visual demonstration, “How Soil Functions”, followed by a discussion of soil health principles from regional expert, Marlon Winger (USDA NRCS). The more we understand our soil, the better we can emulate nature and start to decrease our inputs. Managing for soil health is one of the easiest and most effective ways for farmers to increase crop productivity and profitability while improving the environment. This workshop will provide the background to understand soil health on your farm and consider practices to improve your soil.
