Throughout July and September, farmers all over Illinois can understand soil health practices that benefit their family farms at Soil Health Partnership field days.
Next Thursday, July 26, from 8 am to 12 pm, Sangamon County farmers can learn about soil health and see in-person examples. The Auburn event is co-hosted by David Moose, a Soil Health Partnership farmer and Sangamon County Soil and Water Conservation District.
The event will include discussions on these topics:
- Catherine O'Reilly, Illinois State University - Water Quality
- Donna Brandt, University of Missouri - Soil Health
- Soil Health Partnership - Illinois Report
The topic discussion concludes with a farmer-led panel to address questions and concerns from attendees. Afterward, farmers will witness first-hand a soil pit to observe root growth and soil properties.
