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.
