Soil Health Expo

September 9 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm

Free

Learn how to economically integrate no-till, strip-till, and cover crops into your system from experienced farmers.

Topics include:

  • Soil fertility
  • Nutrient management
  • How to integrate cover crops into reduced till operations
  • True cost of field erosion

A farmer panel will discuss the challenges that local producers face when striving to improve soil health. Lastly, watch some equipment get dirty in the side–by–side equipment demonstrations presented by regional and national manufacturers of cover crop interseeders, strip-till implements, and no-till planters.

The Expo is a collaboration between the Rollofson family, Grant Soil and Water Conservation District, the University of Minnesota – Extension, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and the Pomme de Terre River Association.

Registration is required.
