The Soil Health Institute’s Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton project recently launched a webinar series. New episodes will be offered weekly from now until mid-May on the institute’s YouTube Channel and soil health training webpage, according to a news release.
“This targeted soil health training provides relevant information to farmers, consultants, and other field conservationists for implementing more sustainable farming operations,” said David Lamm, project manager of Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton.
Episodes will explore links between soil biology and soil health, examine soil health planning principles, help innovators rethink management paradigms related to nutrient and pest management, and guide producers through identifying key soil health indicators and management practices that can be applied to their operations.
Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton provides farmer-focused education and training delivered by Soil Health Institute scientists in partnership with soil health technical specialists and cotton farmers who have implemented successful soil health management systems. The project aims to increase adoption of soil health management systems among cotton producers, while quantifying environmental and economic benefits of that adoption.
Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton is supported by Wrangler brand, the VF Corp. Foundation and the Walmart Foundation. For more information about the project and access to the webinar series, visit https://soilhealthinstitute.org/soil-health-training/.
