CCA program offers soil health seminar

The Certified Crop Adviser program will offer a seminar on soil health, Tuesday, March 8, 12:30-1:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Dr. Jerry Hatfield, with present “Why is Soil Health Important?” Jerry is the Laboratory Director and Supervisory Plant Physiologist, National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment.

Information about the course: Soils with high quality are a reservoir of water and nutrients for optimum plant growth and larger yields.  Poor quality soils do not support optimum plant growth and are especially vulnerable to weather variations throughout the growing season.  Improving our soil health improves the efficiency of water and nutrient use resulting in enhanced profitability.  It begins with the soil microclimate that fosters and maintains soil biology.  Learn how improved soil health expands agricultural production.

The course may be watched live or streamed online within 30 days of the seminar date.

Cost is $25 for Members/Certified Professionals and $40 for non-members.  Media may qualify for a waived registration by emailing
