Topic — DIY Soil Health Methods

Speaker — Marshall McDaniel

A rapid growth in interest about all things soil health – particularly measurements – has come from farmers and researchers alike in the past few decades. However, soil health measurements are expensive and sometimes tricky to interpret. Marshall will talk about some research his team has done on simple, affordable, DIY soil health measurements that can expand soil health monitoring.
