Soil Management Summit

Cultivating soil productivity and health

Rye cover crop growing among corn stubble.

The Soil Management Summit emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science. Straight from the fields, learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. Hear from no-till, reduced tillage, and cover crop farmers as they share their experiences, so you can be spared the same hard-learned lessons.

The summit features presentations and Q&A with researchers, farmers and agricultural advisors, information from sponsors, and conversations with farmers experienced in different soil health practices.

Those who attend the entire conference can earn Certified Crop Adviser continuing education units (CEUs).

Registration scholarships will be available for interested producers. Contact Shane Bugeja for more information, sbugeja@umn.edu.

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 who are 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 a range of topics related to 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.
