Soil Management Summit

The Soil Management Summit is a farmer-oriented event dedicated to practical soil management in Minnesota. Experienced farmers, researchers and consultants speak on a variety of soil management topics such as:

  • Cover crops
  • Tillage
  • Nutrient management
  • Soil health economics
  • Livestock - soil health connections
  • Soil biology


  • Experts, researchers, and farmers present breakout sessions on practical topics.
  • Exhibitors display innovative solutions to improve your soil health and farm profitability.
  • Scheduled breaks and the Beer and Bull session encourage networking with exhibitors, researchers and attendees.
  • Farmers from across Minnesota share their experiences with soil health and management at panel discussions.
  • Table talks support informal discussions with farmers and advisors working through similar soil management challenges. 

For more information about this event, contact Shane Bugeja at sbugeja@umn.edu or 507-384-5593.

The Soil Management Summit is presented by University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Office for Soil Health.

Become a sponsor

As a sponsor for the Soil Management Summit, you will network, gain exposure, and market directly to customers interested in successfully reducing their tillage or incorporating cover crops into their system.

Our in-person event draws between 200-250 attendees each year who are all interested in soil health, soil management and farm transfer. Most of our attendees are full-time farmers, and many are Ag advisors who support hundreds of farmers.

As a sponsor, we invite you to share promotional materials and videos to show throughout the conference during breaks, the welcome, and the closing talk.
