Date:
05/22/19, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

This webinar will examine the functions of the soil food web and key components thereof in promoting soil health and fertility and sustainable organic crop production. Research-based guidance on organic practices and NOP-approved inputs for improved soil food web function will be discussed.

The Organic Farming Research Foundation and eOrganic is hosting a series of 9 webinars focused on the topics covered in their new Soil Health and Organic Farming educational guides: building organic matter, weed management, conservation tillage, cover crops, plant breeding and variety selection, water management and quality, nutrient management, and more!

This series is recommended for farmers, extension agents, educators, agricultural professionals, and others interested in building soil health.

Mark Schonbeck and Diana Jerkins of the Organic Farming Research Foundation will review the most recent research on soil health practices and explore how organic growers can build healthy soils on their operations. The webinars will provide practical guidelines for growers, in-depth analysis of research outcomes, and an opportunity to get your questions answered.
