Join us on Friday, November 16th for the Hoosier Chapter’s Annual Meeting and Awards Ceremony.
Dr. Walter Lowdermilk's study “Conquest of the Land through 7,000 Years” provides a significant historical linkage to the importance of soil health today. Culture greatly impacts agricultural and conservation practices and our ability to sustain natural resources. Additional pressures such as extreme weather events, a growing population and less farmable land means that taking proper care of the soil is as critical as it is age-old and wise.
