Come hear the latest findings and experiences of researchers and local farmers on BMPs to improve soil health, manage nutrients and reduce phosphorus loading to the Sydenham River Watershed.

Keynote speakers include Steve Groff, a cover crop coach with over 25 years of experience farming with cover crops.

Dr. Donald Scavia, a professor at the University of Michigan, will share results of a phosphorus-loading model in the St. Clair-Detroit River watershed showing which BMP bundles will reach the 40% phosphorus loading reduction targets.

2018 and 2019 OSCIA Soil Champions will present on how they build soil structure, incorporate cover crops, and utilize strip-till and no-till practices.

Cost is $20. Refreshments and lunch provided. Please register at: https://www.scrca.on.ca/soil-health-conference-february-12-2020/
