Lessons learned from Indiana Conservation Cropping Systems on-farm soil health research/demonstration sites

Dec 8, 2020 2:00 pm US/Eastern

What will you learn?
Join to understand ways to improve the design, establishment, and operation of a state-wide, on-farm research and demonstration project for education and collection of soil health data. This webinar will discuss the lessons learned by the Indiana Conservation Cropping Systems Initiative (CCSI) in a state-wide program to establish soil health demonstration plots on farmers’ fields. The CCSI was one of the first state soil health groups in the US, and in 2012 it started establishing on-farm trials to test different soil health practices and to use commercial soil health tests to document changes in soil health with time. The farmer cooperators were also a key part of the education/outreach team for field days, workshops, and small group interactions with other farmers not yet using soil health practices. This webinar will discuss some of the challenges of this project and some recommendations for future projects with similar goals. Learn more...
