Soil Health Workshops Held

May. 3, 2016
Soil Fertility Team hosts workshops on soil health.

The Ohio State Soil Fertility team put on a soil health workshop to educate OSU Extension educators, graduate students and staff on the latest science of soil health. Two identical workshops were held on April 21 and 27th at OARDC in Wooster. The full day workshop exposed participants to concepts of soil health, promising tests available and what these tests functionally reflect in the soil. The morning session was mostly informal lectures and discussion followed by hands-on experience in the laboratory running the tests. Speakers included John Obrycki, Vinayak Shedekar, Rafiq Islam, Anthony Fulford, Tunsisa Hurisso, Vijay Chaganti and Steve Culman. A total of 55 participants attended the workshops which will be offered again, sometime in late summer, date TBD.
