Join your fellow farmers for a soil health panel discussion on Tuesday, February 20!

A soil health panel discussion featuring Crookston-area farmers will be held next week Tuesday, February 20 from 2 to 4 pm at Bede Ballroom in the University of Minnesota Crookston's Sargeant Student Center and sponsored by the West Polk Soil and Water Conservation District and UMN Extension. Park in lot A on the north end of campus. On the panel will be farmers that have had demonstrated success strip-tilling sugarbeets or have participated in research projects with University of Minnesota. They will be willing to share both what has worked well (or not so well) for them in their operation and can provide suggestions for how best to incorporate these soil conservation practices into your larger cropping system.  To get an accurate head count and make sure we have plenty of refreshments and chairs available, grab a family member or neighbor to bring along and RSVP in one of three ways: 1) Call: (218) 281-6070 2) Call or text: (309) 299-1993 3) Register here:
