SANGAMON COUNTY HOSTS SOIL HEALTH FIELD DAY NEXT THURSDAY

Jul, 19, 2018  |  Today's News |  Best Management Practices

Throughout July and September, farmers all over Illinois can understand soil health practices that benefit their family farms at Soil Health Partnership field days.

 

Next Thursday, July 26, from 8 am to 12 pm, Sangamon County farmers can learn about soil health and see in-person examples. The Auburn event is co-hosted by David Moose, a Soil Health Partnership farmer and Sangamon County Soil and Water Conservation District.

 

The event will include discussions on these topics:

  • Catherine O'Reilly, Illinois State University - Water Quality
  • Donna Brandt, University of Missouri - Soil Health
  • Soil Health Partnership - Illinois Report

 

The topic discussion concludes with a farmer-led panel to address questions and concerns from attendees. Afterward, farmers will witness first-hand a soil pit to observe root growth and soil properties.
