Field to Fork: Soil Health Forum
Healthy soil is essential for sustainable and productive agriculture. Whether you are a farmer with large land for crops, or have a small backyard garden, learning the principles of soil health and usable best practices is key.
Managing soil health allows producers to work with the land, not against it, while reducing erosion, maximizing water infiltration, improving nutrient cycling, and improving the resiliency of their working land. Join us for our latest Field to Fork Forum to learn more about the importance of soil health, how to understand your own soil, and sustainable methods to improve your land and yields.
Our host for this Field to Fork forum will be Professor Anna Cates, Minnesota’s first State Soil Health Specialist in the MN Office for Soil Health (MOSH). MOSH is dedicated to improving soil health in Minnesota by working with farmers and conservation professionals. Anna’s research focuses on soil organic matter cycling and storage in a variety of cropping systems. She received a PhD in Agronomy and an MS in Soil Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
