The Soil Health Track @ the OACD State Meeting is an opportunity for agriculture producers, conservation districts and other interested members of the public to hear from experts about the soil health movement in conservation, as well as network with other producers about soil health practices they have tried on their own operations.

“These sessions are part of OACD’s commitment to provide conservation districts and the public the resources and partnership opportunities they need to preserve Oklahoma’s natural resources,” said Steve House, OACD Board President.
Speakers will cover topics such as managing weeds with plant diversity, assessing the health of your soil, how soil health can increase your farm’s profits and how to apply soil health practices to grazing lands.

"The soil really is the key to an overall healthier ecosystem for all of us,” said Jimmy Emmons, OACD President-Elect and Oklahoma Soil Health advocate. “On my own operation, I have seen a dramatic difference in the resiliency of my soils over the last five years through implementing practices such as no-till and adding multi-species cover crops.”As drought, flood and uncertain markets continue to apply pressure on Oklahoma’s farms and ranches, producers are turning to soil health practices in increasing numbers to unlock hidden productivity and resiliency in their operations."

OACD and its partners are committed to rebuilding the health of Oklahoma’s soils. To learn more about how OACD is working to save our soils visit www.okconservation.org/healthy-soils.
