Soil Health and Water Quality

Soil Health is a rapidly evolving movement that is frequently in the headlines. Water Quality is important everywhere, but specific issues vary widely based on geography, land use, and population. Attend this webinar to learn about resources that you can use to answer questions, present information, and connect individuals to research projects that are working on solutions to these rapidly evolving topics.

This webinar will offer resources to help you answer questions and present information to your clients in HTML, PowerPoint, recorded webinar, and video format. Links to web pages and Extension resources across the North Central region will help you stay up to date with the latest information, such as the Soil Health Nexus web page and the Transforming Drainage web page, ensuring you have the latest information to provide to your clients. There will be scripted PowerPoint slides that address current soil health testing and the new Soil Health Institute indicators. The newest resources on cover crops and SARE grants will be presented along with practical resources that can help your clients connect best practices to their operation.

Use these resources to help individuals you work with transition to soil health and water management practices that benefit their operations while benefiting the public. Measurable impacts for individuals who adopt research proven practices may include increased yield stability over years, soil loss (erosion) reduction, soil organic matter improvement, reduced irrigation water use, and reduced concentrations of nutrients in agricultural drainage systems.
