Soil Health Café Talk set for Jan. 15

The North Dakota State University Extension’s Richland County office is hosting a Soil Health Café Talk from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 15 at City Brew Hall in Wahpeton. Aaron Daigh will join us for this talk.

Aaron’s research focuses on soil physics (i.e. water movement, soil temperature, etc.). He has completed many tillage research projects including a local project with plots in Barney and Mooreton, North Dakota and Fergus Falls, Minnesota. Luke Ressler will also appear for the café talk. He is a farmer in the Hillsboro, North Dakota area and a member of the soil health team.

With the harvest challenges farmers faced in 2019, this is a good opportunity to discuss options for unplanted, unharvested or acres that were not worked this fall. There is no need to register and lunch is provided.
