Soil Health - Cover Crops for Healthy Soils Online plus Lena, WI field day on 10/07/2014 *

Course Description:

The online Intro to Soil Health course provides an overview of the importance of soil health to crop production and dives into the three primary characteristics of soil: the physical, chemical and biological.. It also demonstrates easy-to-use field tests to identify current soil conditions and highlights the common practices that a farmer may choose to implement in order to improve soil health. The online portion of this course must be completed before the field training.

The field training will build on the online course topics through hands-on activities and farm scenarios. It focuses on the evaluation of various agricultural practices on soil health parameters and the selling of these concepts to producers. Participants will utilize basic evaluation methods to document soil, water and plant properties in the field. Activities will enhance participants’ data collection, communication and problem-solving skills through in-field case studies.

Students must complete the online portion before the field day training.

The field training site(s) will depend on the locations of the online student participants, and will be held after the online course is complete.

This introductory course is a prerequisite for a series of supplemental online soil health courses, including Soil Health - Cover Crops for Healthy Soils, Soil-Water Management and Soil Health Management Systems.
