National Soil Conservation Week
National Soil Conservation Week is April 16-22, and to recognize the valuable role that soil conservation plays in agriculture, here are a few best management practices aimed at giving you the best soil possible:
- Practice low-tillage methods to prevent erosion and build soil organic matter
- Establish grassed waterways to prevent soil and nutrient loss through spring run-off (see our Riparian Restoration Program for more on how Kneehill County can help you get FREE grass seed)
- Complete an Environmental Farm Plan to learn specific practices to implement on your farm to help conserve soil and make the most out of our land
