The University of Nebraska-Lincoln will host the first Nebraska Soil Health School sponsored by the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The event will be on Thursday, March 2 at the Prairie Winds Community Center, 428 N Main St., Bridgeport from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Increasing knowledge of soil health and putting it to practice nurtures the ground and ensures long-term profitability. Soil health practices are a pathway to resilient soils to achieve optimum productivity and environmental quality, said Jerry Hatfield, retired USDA-ARS Plant Physiologist/Laboratory Director. Dr. Hatfield is scheduled to give a keynote speech at this school.
