Recent assessments of soil degradation and its cost to agriculture in Canada indicate that soil conservation efforts have fallen far short of expectations. But not all is lost. There are a variety of soil management practices that farmers are doing or can implement to build soil productivity and profitability while ensuring the sustainability of farms and the industry.
Dr. David Lobb, a professor in the department of soil science at the University of Manitoba, will share these soil management practices and their implementation in the context of the challenges facing agriculture. As the keynote speaker, Dr. Lobb will present how to “make soil great again” at Top Crop Manager’s Soil Management and Sustainability Summit, to be held Feb. 26, 2019, in Saskatoon.
Despite the challenges facing agriculture, soil remains a critical to a successful operation. Don’t miss the opportunity to learn about practices that will help your operation evolve. Register today for the 2019 Soil Management and Sustainability Summit!
The Summit is approved for 7 CCA-CEUs and 7 CCSC-CEUs.
