 “Enriching Soil, Enhancing Life” is designed to connect and advance the science, adoption, and environmental benefits of soil health. A wide array of practical information, research, and actionable takeaways will be presented that is relevant to farmers, agribusiness, consultants, scientists, field conservationists, government, and non-governmental organization professionals around the world. There is no cost to attend the event, but you must register at https://soilhealthinstitute.org/2021-annual-meeting.

The two-day event will feature six plenary sessions:

  1. Farmers’ Experiences with Adopting Soil Health Systems;
  2. Business Case for Regenerative Soil Health Systems;
  3. Agricultural Input Impacts on Soil Health;
  4. Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation through Soil Health;
  5. Establishing Soil Health Interpretations for Farmers and Conservation Planners; and
  6. Understanding and Managing the Soil Microbiome.

Each day, sessions will run from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET, break for an hour, then resume from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET.

“We’re at a critical juncture in the fight against climate change,” said Wayne Honeycutt, CEO of the Soil Health Institute. “Our organization hosts this event to connect more people to the most recent science behind soil health to empower implementation of practices and soil health systems that not only benefit farmers’ livelihoods but can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, nutrient runoff, and provide many other environmental benefits worldwide.”
