Soil Balancing: What do the Numbers Say about its Effects on Soils, Crops, Weeds and Farms?
Everyone uses numbers to make decisions, although the numbers people have and the ways they use them often differ. These differences can spell both excitement and challenge when trying to understand and use Soil Balancing. Join Ohio State to discuss Soil Balancing by the numbers, as farmers, consultants, and researchers discuss the numbers they have and the numbers they wish we had.
Soil management has undeniable effects on crops, farms, and the environment. Through surveying growers and conducting experiments and interviews, a multidisciplinary team at Ohio State is working to develop a more complete and widely-shared understanding of Soil Balancing. That understanding will help move the science and practice of SB forward, allowing people to apply and study SB principles and practices more effectively.
This phone-in event will continue the conversation about the basis and practice of Soil Balancing. Resource people will be on hand to provide input, but Ohio State also wishes to hear from callers and learn from their experiences.
Once registered, you will receive a confirmation email which includes instructions for calling in the day of the broadcast.
