The 5th annual National Strip-Tillage Conference offers 7 general session speakers, 12 Strip-Till Classrooms and 20 invaluable Strip-Till Roundtables. Just as important is the chance to profit from unlimited hallway networking with the most innovative, forward-thinking minds in strip-till during this late-July event in Iowa City!
“What Have We Learned About How Tillage Systems & Cover Crops Affect Soil Health?”
This will be one of the topics, headed by professor of soil science Harold van Es. Harold van Es is also chair of the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences at Cornell University.
Treating “sick soils” isn’t as simple as applying a Band-Aid or injecting an antibiotic. A permanent path to recovery requires a thorough diagnosis and an incremental plan.
Harold van Es has been digging into the dynamics of developing healthy soils and strong biological activity. His team developed the Comprehensive Assessment of Soil Health (CASH) framework, which includes the measurement of 16 soil health indicators that represent important processes in the soil. CASH can be used to identify specific problems related to physical, biological and chemical concerns in the soil, and CASH reports allow for targeted management approaches.
He will discuss how different management practices impact biological, physical and chemical indicators and what strip-tillers can learn from those variables to improve soil biology.
