Soil compaction management is an essential component of operation planning for producers who want to maximize crop productivity. The University of Minnesota Extension Northern Soil Compaction Conference provides technical advice and expertise to help producers increase their yields and profit. The virtual conference will take place January 26 and 27.
The conference is co-sponsored U of M Extension, North Dakota State University, and Manitoba Agriculture and Resource Development. It will provide the latest information about soil compaction, minimizing future risks, and the potential benefits of implementing an management plan.
The conference will feature presentations about:
- The character and behavior of soil compaction
- What’s happening underground?
- Can we use crop rotations and cover crops to reduce compaction?
- Manitoba’s experience with controlled traffic farming
Afternoon table talks will allow attendees to dive deeper into areas of interest, such as tractor performance and diagnosing compaction. Certified Crop Advisors will receive 5.5 CEUs.
