Soil Health U & Trade Show – Salina, KS

December 20, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$125

“A 2-day event providing high-quality instruction to teach High Plains farmers and ranchers how to sustainably maximize profit from every acre of land.”

This event reflects land as a resource that, when treated with care, can continue to provide for farmers and ranchers even when times are tough. Building soil organic matter provides more water holding capacity, giving soil resiliency to produce even in times of weather extremes. Well-managed soils make soil nutrients more readily available, reducing the need for commercially applied fertilizers. Soils possessing healthy characteristics have fewer weed problems, pest problems and disease problems—all of which must be combated with chemical applications. All this can be managed by reducing tillage, diversifying crop rotation, adding grazing of crop residues, and adding cover crops.

Soil Health U and Trade Show is an HPJ event.
