Healthy soil should be the objective of every farmer. But what is soil health and how can it be improved? In these free workshops you will get an overview of the basics of soil health and how to evaluate it, and learn about 14 principles and practices that help to improve soil health. You will receive a copy of the new publication ‘Soil Health in Field and Forage Crop Production’, and be able to observe a live demonstration of the effects of poor and good management on soil health. Soil health specialists from Penn State and USDA-NRCS will be presenting and farmers from your area will explain how they have improved soil health on their farm. Come join us for an exciting exchange of ideas!
