On Feb. 18, 2014, farmers have an opportunity to learn from one another while exploring local and national perspectives on cover crops. You are invited to attend a free, live broadcast of the National Conference on Cover Crops and Soil Health and discuss how to build soil health, improve yields, curb erosion, manage pests and build resilience in your farming system.
Locations in every state across the country will host Cover Crops and Soil Health Forums concurrent with the National Cover Crop and Soil Health Conference in Omaha, Neb. The forums will open with live video Internet-stream from the national conference and will feature Secretary Tom Vilsack (invited) and Howard G. Buffett, followed by panel presentations from leading cover crop farmers from across the nation.
Approximately 200 concurrent forum locations throughout the country will provide farmers, NRCS and our conservation partners and stakeholders with a unique opportunity to experience the conference and discuss ways we can more fully organize and energize our efforts to enable the soil health movement—at the grassroots level.
