Soil health and nutrient management play a large role in making sure landowners can achieve sustainability and profit for years to come. To help farmers learn how to improve their soil health and learn proper nutrient management, a Soil Stewardship and Nutrient Management Field Day is being planned for Sept. 1 near Albany, Minn.
This full-day event will include presentations on soil health, the 4 R’s of nutrient and manure management, ag data stewardship, a farmer panel, and equipment demonstrations in the field.
Featured topics are tailored to farmers, industry partners, agronomists and crop advisers, specialists and farms across the state to learn more about conservation and soil health.
Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., with the field day kicking off at 10 a.m. Lunch will be served at noon. Following lunch, participants will have the opportunity to hear from local farmers who have been working on improving their soil health. After the farmer panel, live equipment demonstrations will begin. The field day is expected to wrap up at 2:30 p.m.
Preregistration is required.
Event details can be found on the Stearns County Soil and Water Conservation District website at Stearns County Soil and Water Conservation District. Participants are encouraged to register by Aug. 23.
