Registration is open to the public for the first time ever to attend the Annual Soil Health Summit in St. Louis, MO.

Soil health is the basis of all farming. Putting the latest knowledge about soil health into the hands of growers and other industry partners is paramount; to that end, the Soil Health Partnership has opened the Annual Soil Health Summit to growers and other industry partners. Slated for January 15th through the 16th in St. Louis, Missouri, the event is aimed at promoting the pursuit of improved health for soil as an on-farm business and environmental strategy. See details below.

Details of the Annual Soil Health Summit

The event is being held by the Soil Health Partnership, which, according to their website, has been “identifying, testing and measuring management practices to improve soil health and benefit farmers’ operations.” The event promises that, ”attendees will benefit from peer-to-peer networking, collaboration, and education on the latest in health strategies, including new data and insights from SHP [the Partnership] .

Furthermore, the SHP’s long-term data collection looks at the impact of practices like reduced tillage, advanced nutrient management, and growing cover crops with an eye on the farm economy and environmental impact alike. Farmers will benefit from what the data shows.

This year’s event marks the first time growers and industry partners have been invited. In a Southeast AgNet article, Shefali Mehta, SHP executive director, is quoted as maintaining that the field team plans to have a more robust data set for 2018. She said the summit marks “the first time we can truly share insights on how the fields are changing over time.”
