The history and current use of Soil Balancing provides a rich opportunity to examine the different ways that farmers and scientists develop and use their knowledge. Join Ohio State to discuss what the concept and practice of Soil Balancing currently means to farmers, researchers, and consultants, and to brainstorm ways in which improved soil management can strengthen sustainably-minded farm management.
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.
