Soil Health Digital Cafe Series: Exploring how farmers’ perceptions of soil health affect their management decisions (preliminary data and future plans)
June 3, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Join the Soil Health Nexus for the next edition of the Soil Health Digital Cafe Series.
The Soil Health Nexus is hosting a series of informal soil health webinars featuring Extension soil health experts and researchers from across the region discussing the latest soil health research, resources, and news. Each webinar will be an hour in length with 20-minute presentation, followed by 10-minutes of Q&A and then a casual 30-minute Digital Cafe where attendees can continue to discuss the topic in more depth with Soil Health Nexus members.
Despite widespread interest in soil health among farmers, the adoption of soil health practices is low. This project seeks to describe how farmers’ understanding of soil health, or mental models, influence their management decisions and can inform agricultural advisors’ outreach and training activities. This webinar will feature Tayler Ulbrich, a student of Michigan State University.
