Soil Health Workshops to Help Landowners Enhance Farm Stewardship

By SHP Staff on Tuesday, 03 September, 2019

Two workshops will be held in Missouri in September and October to provide non-operating landowners an opportunity to learn how to maintain profitability and enhance investment for the future.

These workshops will take an in-depth look at how to maintain profitability and enhance investment for the future. Topics covered will help landowners understand what can be done to enhance farm stewardship, increase wildlife habitat on agricultural lands and work with lessees to make land more productive. The Natural Resources Conservation Service will have the soil health trailer on site for attendees to view the rainfall simulator and interact with other soil health related activities. 

The September 14 event will take place at Warren Stemme Farm at the following address:

165 River Valley Dr.

Maryland Heights, MO 63146

The October 12 event will take place at Burr Oak Woods Nature Center at the following address:

1401 NW Park Rd.

Blue Springs, MO 64015

Both events will take place from 8:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Lunch is provided by Missouri Corn Merchandising and Missouri Soybean Merchandising Council.

“We strive to ensure landowners have access to the best information to make the right decisions for their land. Hosting workshops like these provide opportunities for landowners to find more ways to create economic support to drive long-term viability of their land,” said SHP Field Manager for Southern Illinois and Missouri, Abigail Peterson. 

These workshops are co-sponsored by the Quality Deer Management Association, the National Wild Turkey Federation, MFA Incorporated, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Quail Forever, the Soil Health Partnership and the Missouri Department of Conservation.
