Join SFA’s Kent Solberg and Doug Voss along with Lake of the Woods Soil & Water Conservation District and Natural Resources Conservation Service staff for an afternoon in the field from noon to 3 p.m. Wed., July 5, in Williams, Minn.
We will be looking at ways we can evaluate whether or not our soils are functioning properly. Hosted on Bill Bendickson’s farming operation, we will discuss the context of the farm and the crops produced, utilize a rainfall simulator to see the effects of rain on differing soil management methods, and then have rotating break-out stations to try out methods for evaluating soil health.
This will be an action-packed afternoon, come ready to learn! This event is free to attend. Registration is requested, and walkups are welcome. This workshop is being made possible with funding provided by the Clean Water Land and Legacy Amendment.
Directions: Signs will be placed to help people find the location. A tent will be set up in the field.
