Nearly 50 farmers gathered in Larimore, North Dakota Thursday to learn more about soil health. From weed control to soil structure and tillage practices, the farmers and specialists covered a wide variety of topics. The biggest investment for a farmer is their soil. That’s why Wick stressed the importance of reducing erosion. “Land is not being created and topsoil is not being developed. Also, soil-borne diseases, such as soybean cyst nematode, will transfer with that soil as it blows out of the field.” The series of soil health café talks will start again January 29 in Lidgerwood and Jamestown.
