Soil-Water Management - Online plus 10/7/2014 Field Day in Lena, WI *

Course Description:

Building on the basics from the Intro to Healthy Soils training, this intermediate-level online course will delve further into the topics of soil-water and soil moisture management. Students will gain an understanding of soil-water properties related to water quality and quantity, the benefits of improving water infiltration and soil moisture holding capacity, the common challenges to adoption of practices that improve soil-water balance and how to overcome those challenges. Real-farm examples will be used to reinforce course concepts. The cost of this course includes the field day.

This one-day, intermediate-level field training will build on the online course topics through hands-on activities and farm scenarios. The field training will focus on the evaluation of various agricultural practices on soil health parameters and selling these concepts to producers. Participants will utilize basic evaluation methods to document soil, water and plant properties in the field. Activities will develop participants’ data collection, communication and problem-solving skills through in-field case studies. The cost of the field training is included in the fee for the online Soil-Water Management course, which must be completed before the field training takes place on Oct. 7, 2014 at Olson Farms, 6366 Fredrickson Road in Lena, WI
