Soil-Water Management, Online plus 2015 Field Day

Course Description:

Building on the basics from the Intro to Healthy Soils training, the Soil-Water Management 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 and the online portion of this course must be completed before the field training.

The Wisconsin field training will build on the online course topics through hands-on activities and farm scenarios. It will also focus 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 develop participants’ data collection, communication and problem-solving skills through in-field case studies.

Students may enroll in the online course between now and April 30, 2015, and have until December 31, 2015 to complete the online portion. Field training site(s) will depend on the locations of the online student participants, and will be held after the online course is complete.
