Soil Health Field Tour
The Noble Research Institute invites you to a hands-on field tour with Noble soils and crops consultant Jim Johnson, and world-renowned soil microbiologist Christine Jones, Ph.D.
Spend the morning taking a walk through the Noble cover crop plots, get your hands dirty in the soil and learn how what you see relates to soil biology and soil health. Following lunch, Jones will give a lecture on how enhancing above- and below-ground plant diversity to maximize the power of photosynthesis creates a robust soil microbiome, reducing reliance on additional fertilizers and herbicides; improving soil structure and function; and optimizing soil, plant, animal and human health, water quality, and farm profit.
Registration fee is $25 and includes lunch. For more information or to register, visit www.noble.org/events or call 580-223-5810. Preregistration is requested.
