Soil Balancing: What do the Numbers Say about its Effects on Soils, Crops, Weeds, and Farms?
Wednesday, November 14, 2018
1:30-3:00 p.m. EST
Everyone uses numbers to make decisions, although the numbers people have and the ways they use them often differ. These differences can spell both excitement and challenge when trying to understand and use Soil Balancing. Join Ohio State University to discuss Soil Balancing by the numbers, as farmers, consultants, and researchers discuss the numbers we have and the numbers we wish we had.
This is the Second of three Conference Call-in events on the topic of Soil Balancing. The final conference call-in event is scheduled for December 12, 2018. Each call-in will bring together a panel of growers, agricultural advisors, and researchers to share their perspectives and experiences.
Anyone with an interest in this topic may call in to listen to the conversation or may contribute questions or comments of their own before, during, or after the event. For more details or to register, visit: https://offer.osu.edu/SB-call-in
What is Soil Balancing:
Soil Balancing is an approach to soil management which is practiced widely by organic farmers, but is relatively untested by research. A multidisciplinary team at Ohio State is working to develop a more complete and widely shared understanding of soil balancing. Efforts include documenting effects on crops and soils when soil balancing is used, and gathering insight on the ways soil balancing is understood and practiced among researchers, farmers, and consultants.
