Forum at farm bureau to address soil health

Published: Monday, Feb. 17, 2014 2:19 p.m.CDT

Farmers, ranchers, researchers, agricultural business operators and conservationists are invited to participate in forums about cover crops and soil health from 8:45 a.m. until 12:15 p.m. Tuesday at the DeKalb County Farm Bureau Auditorium, 1350 W. Prairie Drive, Sycamore.

The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service is conducting five events simultaneously along with more than 200 other forums throughout the country. They will be in concert with the National Conference on Cover Crops and Soil Health in Omaha, Nebraska, sponsored by the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.

In addition to providing a venue to discuss local cover crop and soil health opportunities, benefits and barriers, the forums will feature live-streaming video of the national conference’s opening session.

Because seating is limited, reservations are required. To participate, contact Kristi Einck at 217-353-6600, or Kristi.einck@il.usda.gov.
