Each year the South Dakota Soil Health Coalition (SDSHC) hosts a conference to bring regional and international soil health experts to South Dakota, providing agricultural producers, business professionals, agency personnel, students, and all others interested, the opportunity to learn about the importance and functions of our soils.
This two-day conference provides a unique opportunity to hear from experts about protecting soil resources and contributing to the soil health movement.
Keynote speakers for the Soil Health Conference include:
Dr. Christine Jones, soils and carbon biologist traveling all the way from Australia
Derek Axten, diversified grain farmer and no-till producer from Saskatchewan Canada
Tom Cannon, farmer and rancher near Blackwell, Oklahoma
Dr. Andrea Bjornestad, Assistant Professor and Extension mental health specialist
Allan Brooks no-tills 2,200 acres of vegetables in Markesan, Wis. We caught up with him at the 2020 National No-Tillage Conference, where he explained how he came to use Harvest International planters and reveals the new one he had built for the 2020 planting season.
The Summit, formerly known as the Conservation Tillage Conference (CTC), features keynote speakers, breakout sessions, table talks and vendor booths. Attendees who stay for the entire conference will be offered CCA continuing education units (CEUs).
