New website for combined soil and gazing conference
By Top Crop Manager
The newly combined Western Canada Conference on Soil Health and the Western Canadian Grazing Conference is featured on a new website: absoilgrazing.com.
The combined conferences will take place on December 5, 6 and 7th 2017 at the Radisson Hotel Edmonton South, with the theme “Profit Above and Wealth Below”. Gabe Brown, Dr. Richard Teague, Ray Archuleta and other soil health researchers and practitioners are confirmed for the conference.
Farming and ranching for soil health supports biodiversity and increases biological activity, both of which are absent in current production technology. In both cases integrating plant diversity, keeping the soil covered, maintaining living roots as long as possible, and minimal soil disturbance leads to reduced crop inputs, greater infiltration and water holding capacity, and a myriad of environmental and social benefits. Soil health is greatly enhanced when practiced in conjunction with animal agriculture.
Attendees will have the opportunity to attend two great conferences in one. Registration information, the conference agenda and the lineup of presenters are being finalized and will be announced in the coming weeks. Current information is available at the new website.
