SDSU Extension hosting soil forums next month

Posted: Updated:

BROOKINGS -- SDSU Extension regional centers in Sioux Falls and Watertown will host soil health educational forums next month.

The "SD's Soil Health Challenge: Don't Get Left in The Dust" events will feature information on soil organic matter, weeds, cover crops and wet soils. Each will also feature a panel of farmers who will share some tips on what has, and what has not, worked on their farms.

SDSU Extension Agronomy Field Specialist Ruth Beck says people should not underestimate the value of soil and the role it will play in the ability to continue to produce an abundance of healthy food.

Beck says the forums are in response to grower feedback following an event last winter in Mitchell.

They're scheduled for Dec. 9 in Sioux Falls and Dec. 10 in Watertown.
