The Texas Soil Health Short Course will focus on building a functioning foundation Feb. 22-23, 2017 at the Region 9 Educational Center in Wichita Falls, Texas. Short course partners expect more than 300 farmers, ranchers, professors, land managers, researchers, public officials, conservationists and students to attend this multi-state short course. The workshop will offer attendees a greater understanding of dynamic soil properties including water infiltration, water holding capacity, and organic matter content. Producer’s practical approaches to implementing a Soil Health Management System on their farm will also be discussed.
Early bird registration is $75 for the short course and $25 for the field tour by February 1, 2017, followed by regular registration of $100 and $40 respectively.
