The Soil Health Partnership announced this week that for the first time the organization has opened to the public the annual Soil Health Summit, January 15 – 16 in St. Louis, and encourages growers and agronomists to attend.
Attendees will benefit from peer-to-peer networking, collaboration, and education on the latest in soil health strategies, including new data and insights from SHP. The partnership’s long-term data collection effort measures the on-farm economic and environmental impact of practices known to improve soil health and sustainability. Those practices include reducing tillage, growing cover crops and practicing advanced nutrient management.
Shefali Mehta, SHP executive director, noted the field team plans to have a more robust data set for 2018. She says the summit marks “the first time we can truly share insights on how the fields are changing over time.”
Registration is open from the Soil Health Summit website
