WSU to co-host SoilCon24 in February

Washington State University will co-host a series of events across the state in February to advance soil health practices and knowledge. SoilCon, now in its fourth year, is a free resource for agricultural professionals to learn science-based soil health information.

People interested in attending one of this year’s in person events are encouraged to watch an online presentation Feb. 6 on the different types of soil health projects taking place worldwide.
