Soil Health Digital Cafe Series Webinar: Gaining Ground-Soil as a Renewable Resource
May 20, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
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. The webinars will take place weekly starting Wednesday, April 29 at 2 pm CT. They 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.
Can health of a degraded soil be regenerated? We use the term ‘regenerative agriculture,’ but what does it mean and does science suggest degraded soils can realistically be brought back to original productivity levels? And if it can, how long will it take? Tune in to hear from Rick Cruse of the Iowa Water Water as he discusses the time required to potentially regenerate components of a healthy soil and identify the most critical soil degradation processes common with today’s agriculture.
