The Soil Health Expo is located two miles west of Barrett, Minnesota on County Road #2 in northern Grant County. The latitude/longitude is 45.901546, -95.826897.

The planning committee is closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation and the impact it may have on our event in September. Registrants will continue to receive updates about the event throughout the summer and we will communicate any changes to format as soon as possible.

Learn how to economically integrate no-till, strip-till, and cover crops into your system from experienced farmers. 

Topics include: 

  • Soil fertility
  • Nutrient management
  • How to integrate cover crops into reduced till operations
  • True cost of field erosion

A farmer panel will discuss the challenges that local producers face when striving to improve soil health. Lastly, watch some equipment get dirty in the side–by–side equipment demonstrations presented by regional and national manufacturers of cover crop interseeders, strip-till implements, and no-till planters.  

The Expo is a collaboration between the Rollofson family, Grant Soil and Water Conservation District, the University of Minnesota - Extension, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and the Pomme de Terre River Association. 


Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, there is no cost to attend this event.


Pre-registration is requested to help with meals, grounds planning, and updates concerning changes in the agenda.
