The Soil Health Institute, a non-profit group for safeguarding and enhancing the vitality and productivity of soils, recently announced its annual meeting will be held on August 11 and 12, 2021.
This year’s theme is “Enriching Soil, Enhancing Life” and the event will be hosted virtually.
“Enriching Soil, Enhancing Life” is designed to connect and advance the science, adoption, and environmental benefits of soil health, according to a news release from the global group that operates from North Carolina’s Research Triangle Park.
A wide array of practical information, research, and actionable takeaways will be presented that will be 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:
- Farmers’ Experiences with Adopting Soil Health Systems
- Business Case for Regenerative Soil Health Systems
- Agricultural Input Impacts on Soil Health
- Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation through Soil Health
- Establishing Soil Health Interpretations for Farmers and Conservation Planners
- 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 Dr. 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.”
