Event description

Description

Sonoma RCD and Sonoma Mountain Institute invite ranchers and prospective ranchers to come learn the latest findings from their Healthy Soils Demonstration Project. This demonstration field trail started in 2018 on a private 300-acre ranch owned by the Sonoma Mountain Institute, is looking at how compost application influences soil health and forage productivity on a working rangeland. This tailgate will include a discussion on the comparison of our baseline vs year 1 soil samples on both treatment and control plots as well as a discussion of practice adoption pros and cons from the ranch manager. We’ll also hear from professionals on how to determine the best type of compost for your ranch.

A more detailed agenda will be posted on our website in the coming weeks. Please don’t miss this opportunity to learn more about boosting soil health on your own ranch!
