CTIC celebrates International Year of Soils at 2015 Commodity Classic. Visit CTIC at Commodity Classic booth 918, where Karen Scanlon, CTIC executive director, and Chad Watts, CTIC project director, will discuss:
Our multi-state project to document the agronomic and economic benefits of cover crops.
The 2015 Conservation in Action Tour in Minnesota, which will feature innovative partnership efforts for conservation farming success.
- CTIC’s work to track cover crop use and document the benefits of keeping the soil covered from harvest to planting. At the booth, pick up a copy of the 2013-2014 Cover Crop Survey Report to see how and why farmers across the country are planting cover crops.
Farmers can take the 2015 cover crop survey right at the booth and get extra entries into CTIC’s prize drawing. And anyone can enter the drawing for Yeti Ramblers or handy smartphone chargers.
(Need a sugar pick-me-up or something to bring home for the kids? CTIC will also be handing out tasty gummy worms and a recipe for building a sweet soil profile that you can eat!)
It’s all part of celebrating the International Year of Soils. Join the party and gather great information at booth 918!
