This workshop is for farmers and ranchers who want to learn about soil health principles and the chemical, biological and physical characteristics of soil. The day will be spent outside focused on discussions and field demonstrations to learn about compaction, infiltration, surface cover, aggregate stability, and other soil health indicators. There will be time to meet and network with other producers, talk with agricultural professionals, learn about programs and funding opportunities, talk about management options, and ask questions about your own operation. We’ll meet at JX Ranch and do field demonstrations on rangeland; afternoon sessions may be indoors, weather dependent. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about soil health in arid working lands!
There is no cost to this workshop. Light breakfast, lunch, water and snacks will be provided. More workshop logistics information will be provided a week prior to the workshop.
The Tucumcari Soil Health Workshop will be facilitated by Amy Larsen, Steve Kadas from NMACD, and Katherine Ottmers. Field demonstrations and brief afternoon presentations will be given by staff at NRCS, SW Quay SWCD and more!
