Farmers all over Illinois have the opportunity to understand the practices that improve soil health and benefit their family farms at Soil Health Partnership field days that will be held all over Illinois throughout July and September 2018.

 

The farmers hosting these field days on their farms have already implemented innovative management practices that result in economic and environmental benefits.  Now, they are anxious to show off their work and the way they have benefited to you so that all of the Illinois agricultural industry might learn how to use soil health to our best advantage.
