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.
