Soil Management Summit

Cultivating soil productivity and health

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 long-time 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 will be offered CCA continuing education units (CEUs).

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

The Soil Management Summit is presented by University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Office for Soil Health with support from Stearns County Soil and Water Conservation District.

2022 Summit

December 15-16 at the Park Event Center (500 Division St, Waite Park, MN 56387)

Our format includes plenty of opportunities to interact with experienced producers and researchers. Break-out sessions provide presentations from researchers and practitioners. Table talk discussions give you a chance to ask questions of practitioners and specialists and panels of farmers and agronomists will share their practical experiences.



“The best part of the meeting was the networking with growers from a wide array of operations and listening to the top-notch speakers that were presenting.”

“This is one of the best conferences I have been to. It is run like a well-oiled machine.”

“Having so many differing opinions and experts in one place, if you had a question to ask, someone there would have an answer for you or find the answer.”
