Before you step back in the field this spring, why not invest an hour in learning more about ways you can protect the soil beneath your feet? The Soil Health Partnership (SHP) will host a Virtual Field Day Webinar on Thursday, Dec. 15 at 11:00 a.m.
An initiative of the National Corn Growers Association in partnership with the Iowa Corn Growers Association (ICGA) and others, the SHP provides the spark for greater understanding and implementation of agricultural best practices to protect resources for future generations. This farmer-led initiative, regularly hosts field days to help farmers learn from their peers about how changing certain practices can improve the environment, and maybe even their bottom-line.
Haven’t attended one of the events yet? They’re bringing this VIRTUAL field day to farmers. Practices discussed will include cover crops, nutrient management and soil management, framed under the umbrella of Iowa’s progressive water quality leadership. You’ll also hear from an Iowa farmer enrolled in the program about his experience in changing the way he farms.

The Soil Health Partnership brings together diverse partner organizations including commodity groups, federal agencies, universities and environmental groups to work toward the common goal of improving soil health. Over a five-year period, the SHP will identify, test and measure farm management practices that improve soil health and benefit farmers. We believe the results of this farmer-led project will provide a platform for sharing peer-to-peer information, and lend resources to benefit agricultural sustainability and profitability. An initiative of the National Corn Growers Association, we provide the spark for greater understanding and implementation of agricultural best practices to protect resources for future generations.
