The carbonate bedrock and highly permeable sandy soils that underlay a significant portion of Wisconsin's agricultural production areas present unique challenges. Sinkholes, low filtering shallow soils, closed depressions and fracture traces increase the challenge of protecting Wisconsin's...

After conducting an inventory of a site to determine its overall condition and identifying the landowner's priorities to be implemented, this advanced-level course focuses on the practices that enhance and sustain the health and well being of the sites ecosystem in a multi-use framework.

The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE2) course will teach students basic soil water erosion concepts as well as how to use the RUSLE2 model.

This is an online course, designed to be completed on the student's own schedule. We estimate it will take 4 hours to complete the course...

This field training builds on the principals in the introductory course. The day will be spent in the field, examining soil health from the root zone level. Students will have the opportunity to work with the soil health toolkit tools in a variety of farming systems (severely compacted...

Did you ever wonder how tillage systems affect how quickly water drains to tile lines? We will be hooking up an air compressor and smoke bombing tile drainage systems at locations in Wisconsin to show how this method can be used to find broken tile, locate tile lines, and evaluate soil health....
