We’re still putting together the slate for the Midwest Soil Health Summit, to be held Feb. 19-20, 2014, at Arrowwood Resort in Alexandria, and we’re proud to announce the participation of two of the Upper Midwest’s most respected experts: Richard Bieber and Jay Fuhrer.
Bieber is a producer from South Dakota who has been practicing no-till for 27 years and cover cropping for over a decade. Bieber says,
“When it comes to soil health, you are speaking directly to my passion.” Bieber will give a second keynote address after Gabe Brown.
Fuhrer, District Conservationist with the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) in Bismarck, N.D., will lead a session on how to make soil health principles work on your farm.
As you can see, the Summit is going to deliver some of the most innovative farmers and researchers in the Upper Midwest for two days of networking, speakers, panel discussions and breakout sessions – all geared at improving your soil health.
Also slated to appear: Wendy Taheri, Research Microbiologist with the North Central Agricultural Research Laboratory, who will present on cover cropping and mycorrhizae in soils; and Kent Solberg, SFA Livestock and Grazing Coordinator, will be leading a session on designing and customizing cover crops.
