This week 3 workshops were held on soil health in Logan, Ogden, and Richfield. Sponsored by NRCS, UDAF and the local conservation districts. These interesting and informative workshops welcomed guest speakers Jay Fuhrer and Jerry Doan from North Dakota. Also speaking were various local experts on soils. The focus was on the use of cover crops, no till, and intensive grazing in order to keep carbon, an important plant food, in the soil. It was a very successful workshop. Over 150 attended in Logan alone. Come back soon to see a copy of their presentations.
