Northern Soil Compaction Conference set for January 26-27
For producers looking to maximize crop productivity, managing soil compaction is a key component to operation planning. The University of Minnesota (U of M) Extension Northern Soil Compaction Conference will connect producers with soil compaction experts and technical advice to increase yields and profit. The virtual conference is set to be held January 26 and 27.
Co-sponsored by U of M Extension, North Dakota State University, and Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development, the conference will provide the latest information in alleviating soil compaction, minimizing future risk, and benefiting from management plan implementation.
The conference will feature these presentations:
- The behavior and character of soil compaction
- What’s happening underground?
