Extension educators, conservation specialists, and agricultural professionals are invited to a soil health workshop at the Agricultural Research Center on May 18-19.
The two-day workshop will teach participants about soil health principles, soil management, and carbon credits. In addition, attendees will have opportunities for hands-on experiences conducting field demonstrations and field assessments.
The workshop begins at 9 a.m. at the Western Kansas Agricultural Research Center Auditorium. The first day will feature expert speakers on topics such as cover crop management in dryland systems and how soil health is connected to water. Soil health demonstrations will also take place on day one.
On day two of the workshop, participants will learn how to conduct in-field soil assessments, interpret soil health test results, and make soil health recommendations. Specialists will be available during the entire workshop to answer questions and give advice. Meals will be provided to attendees on both days of the event.
Interested participants should RSVP to Augustine Obour (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Stacie Minson (email@example.com) no later than May 15. The event flyer and agenda are available online from the Kansas Center for Agricultural Resources and the Environment.
This event is organized by K-State Research and Extension, the Soil Health Nexus, and the Kansas Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS).
