Illinois Cover Crop On-Farm Network Monthly Calls


ISAP convenes cover crop specialists from across Illinois and the broader Midwest region for monthly discussions to explore new research, troubleshoot field conditions, and provide updates on policies and programs related to cover crops. Engaging with presentations by experts, researchers, and industry leaders, our ICCON calls provide an opportunity to share knowledge and network with a strong community of cover crop enthusiasts.

In the second session of ICCON’s Soil Test Series, we will be joined by Robert Schindelbeck, Director at Cornell Soil Health Laboratory. Director Schindelbeck will give an overview of the Cornell Soil Test, what it is and how it works, and he will distinguish between the soil health test and standard nutrient analysis. Read more about Director Schindelbeck below. 1 CEU will be provided for each session in the series.
