“You don’t know enough to know what you need to know.” This recent recollection by a farmer after their encounter with a more experienced one reminds us that the questions matter. Much is said, written, and claimed about Soil Balancing but all is still not clear about it. If there is to be a more useful knowledge base about Soil Balancing—shared by farmers, consultants, and researchers alike—new questions and new ways of addressing them must be shared and accepted by many. Join Ohio State to discuss and shape where investigations of Soil Balancing should go next and how.
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.
