2023 ANR Seminar
Sustainable Intensification of the Rural Landscape: Protecting Soil Health, Water Quality, and Farm Profitability

9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Friday, March 10, 2023
AgroLiquid Conference Center, St. Johns, Michigan

Rural landscapes are complex physical and biological systems integrating crop and forested land, crop rotations and riparian zones, nutrient cycling, a balance of pests and pathogens, and other interactions. Many producers seek to redesign their cropping systems guided by agroecological principles whereby soil health and ecological services accumulate in mutually supportive ways. They are actively involved in devising, testing, and evaluating new and innovative practices on their farms to enhance biodiversity and beneficial interactions, and improve resilience and risk mitigation. Attendees at the 2023 Michigan Chapter of the Soil and Water Conservation Society March 10 conference will discover practical and sustainable ways to manage the rural landscape.

These speakers are included on the agenda, order yet to be determined.
