Soil Balancing: The Questions Matter
Wednesday, December 12, 2018
1:30-3:00 p.m. EST
"You don't know enough to know what you need to know." This recent recollection by a farmer after their encounter with a more experienced one reminds us that the questions matter. Much is said, written, and claimed about Soil Balancing but all is still not clear about it. If there is to be a more useful knowledge base about Soil Balancing—shared by farmers, consultants, and researchers alike—new questions and new ways of addressing them must be shared and accepted by many. Join The Ohio State University to discuss and shape where investigations of Soil Balancing should go next and how.
This is the third and final Conference Call-in event on the topic of Soil Balancing. Each call-in will bring together a panel of growers, agricultural advisors, and researchers to share their perspectives and experiences.
Anyone with an interest in this topic may call in to listen to the conversation or may contribute questions or comments of their own before, during, or after the event. For more details or to register, visit: https://offer.osu.edu/SB-call-in
What is Soil Balancing:
Soil Balancing is an approach to soil management which is practiced widely by organic farmers, but is relatively untested by research. A multidisciplinary team at Ohio State is working to develop a more complete and widely shared understanding of soil balancing. Efforts include documenting effects on crops and soils when soil balancing is used, and gathering insight on the ways soil balancing is understood and practiced among researchers, farmers, and consultants.
