Heliae® Agriculture's Dr. Karl Wyant, Vice President of Ag Science, and Lindsay Vicars, Supervisor of Ag Science Research, will explore concepts of regenerative agriculture, the soil microbiome, soil health, and soil quality as it relates to no-till practices.

The two presenters:

  • Discuss three holistic components that serve as the foundation of a good soil management program — chemical, physical, and biological.
  • Walk you through the biological management component in detail, and describe how you can leverage new product technologies to produce regenerative synergies in no-till systems.
  • Review crop specific case studies that demonstrate how improvements in soil can lead to better yield and quality at harvest while also regenerating the soil in a no-till system.

Email Julia Gerlach at No-Till Farmer with any questions about the webinar.
