Virtual Soil Field Day This Week

Cindy Zimmerman

soilhealthpartnershipAs farmers head to the fields this spring, the Soil Health Partnership is offering a virtual field day to learn more about the soil that makes up their livelihood.

This summer begins the third year of field days which focus on sustainable practices that improve the environment and the bottom line. Before those events kick-off, however, United Suppliers is helping bring a field day right to the computer with a webinar specifically for Iowa farmers. The webinar, scheduled for this Wednesday March 30, will focus on Iowa’s progressive water quality leadership and speakers include a farmer currently enrolled in the program.

Speakers include Elyssa McFarland, Soil Health Partnership Field Manager; Sean McMahon, Executive Director, Iowa Agriculture Water Alliance; Wade Kent, a Soil Health Partnership farmer in Algona, Iowa; and Dave Muth, AgSolver.

The webinar will be from noon to 1 p.m. central time. Register here.
