Getting started with soil improvement on your farm - Webinar

Beginning farmers often start out with soils in need of improvement.  Development of a practical plan for increasing fertility and productivity of your soils is key to long-term success.  This applies to all types and sizes of farms.  The goal of this on-line program is to provide information and insights to help you plan affordable, systematic steps to improve your farm soils.

This 2-hour Adobe Connect webinar is part of the ongoing "2014 Beginning Farmer Webinar Series".  Michigan State University educator Jim Isleib will present information on practical approaches to making farm soils more productive.  Prudent use of crop rotation, cover crops, and amendments including livestock manures, compost, lime, and purchased conventional and organic fertilizers will be included.  Questions and discussion will take place through the webinar 'chat' function.

Supporting written materials will be available for download during and after the webinar.  Participants will receive the webinar URL after their registration and payment is received.  A recording of the webinar will be made available to registered participants.
