Coming up over the Next Few Months, The Soil Health Institute presents a series of virtual meetings as part of its Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton project.
The goal of the project is to increase adoption of soil health management systems. The “Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton Farmer Showcase” features cotton producers and soil health specialists across the United States discussing the challenges and successes they have encountered on their journey to improve soil health. Each state’s speakers summarize how producers are making essential soil health practices like no-till and cover crops work under local soil and climate conditions.
Showcase events will be livestreamed beginning Tuesday, February 2nd at 2:00 p.m. (EST) and run every Tuesday through March. Cotton producers, consultants and other interested parties can register one time to participate in each or all Farmer Showcase episodes. All registrants will receive notices prior to an event.
Soil Health: View from the Cotton Gin
Tuesday, March 9, 2021
Spotlight on North Carolina/Virginia
Mr. Robbie Waters, Edwards Cotton Company, Scotland Neck, North Carolina
Mr. Zeb Winslow, Farmer, Scotland Neck, North Carolina
This showcase will include views from Mr. Robbie Waters, Scotland Neck, NC, who manages the Edwards Cotton Company, on how focusing on soil health provides benefit to the cotton industry. Mr. Waters is also a cotton producer who is starting to use cover crops. He will be joined by Mr. Zeb Winslow, Scotland Neck, NC, who has been using no-till, cover crops and nutrient management to grow his cotton for the past 8 years. Mr. Winslow has learned that getting his cover crop planted and terminated successfully and in a timely manner are keys to his soil health management. In 2020, he used a split row planter to seed all of his 750 acres of cover crops that will be terminated using a roller crimper in the spring.
