      EVENT DETAILS
      Clemson Soil Health Conference 2019

      Building Soil Health: Principles, Practices and Profitability South Carolina agriculture producers have identified soil health training as a critical need, including information on new developments in the science of soil health, and on advanced topics such as cover crop mixtures to achieve specific goals, innovative management strategies like inter-cropping and relay cropping, and how cultural practices that build soil health can mitigate negative impacts of extreme weather on farms. Clemson Sustainable Agriculture Program in collaboration with Clemson Extension,  the University of South Carolina and stakeholder organizations with support from the Southern Region Sustainable Agriculture (SARE) Program invites you. The objectives of this event are to 1) Discuss new scientific discoveries that inform the latest recommendations to build health soil; 2) Hear from farmers who have implemented innovative approaches for building a resilient system; 3) Engage with farmers, Extension personnel and other ag professionals to address soil health challenges and opportunities; 4) Provide tools for teaching soil health for agriculture professionals who work with farmers. During this conference soil health experts will discuss critical components of soil health management including soil health principles, biology of regenerative soils, and new indicators of soil health. It will feature breakout sessions on specific soil health management practices for livestock, row crop and horticultural producers, and conclude with a facilitated discussion on the economics of soil health.  Special optional programming on day two will offer “Tools for Teaching Soil Health”, for Extension agents and other agriculture professionals who work with farmers. Sessions will include a panel discussion with soil health experts on teaching soil health to farmers, overviews of various soil health testing methods and indicators, and hands-on demonstrations of on-farm activities that can be used for teaching soil health. **A total of 8 CEUs will be offered to registered Certified Crop Advisors for participating in this event.
