Soil Health Field Demonstration

Upcoming Farm Demonstration Visits to Focus on Soil Health

Farmers will share practical experiences in “growing” healthy soil on Valley farms

DAVIS, Calif., April. 27, 2016 –The California Farm Demonstration Network (CFDN) is hosting a series of farm visits for agricultural producers during the months of May and June that will demonstrate how long-term goals for healthy soil are being achieved at each farm—without compromising production.

Farmers using various soil health practices (such as cover crops, conservation tillage and more)  will discuss their soil health management systems and experiences. Network partners, including representatives from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, UC Cooperative Extension, Resource Conservation Districts and other partners will also be on hand to explain monitoring and evaluation work being done on the farms.

“Soil health management systems show promise for maintaining and improving production, while reducing or eliminating many common resource concerns including soil erosion, nutrient loss, and soil degradation associated with the loss of soil organic carbon,” said CFDN coordinator Jeff Mitchell, UC Cooperative Extension specialist in the Department of Plant Sciences at UC Davis. “An important component of these on-farm demonstrations is monitoring to evaluate the effectiveness of conservation practices.” 

Producers, conservationists and other interested individuals are encouraged to attend one or more of these demonstrations, to be held at 10:00 a.m. on the dates below at the following locations:
