Manure and Soil Health Testing Roundtable

In the Manure and Soil Health Testing roundtable, we hope to discover what current soil health tests help to quantify manure impacts on soil characteristics, thus determining which soil test is the best indicator and best value. We’ll also debate which types of fields might benefit most from manure used to improve soil health and procedures for collecting samples for soil health tests that would best recognize results from use of manure. We’ll also talk about field experiences and observations related to the value of manure as well as what farmers still need related to soil building with manure. This roundtable is the first of a four part series discussing the current state of our knowledge relative to manure’s impact on soil health.

Presenters include:
  • Bianca Moebius-Clune, Ph.D.
  • Donna Brandt
  • Russell Dresbach
  • Geoff Ruth
