Soil Health and Vegetable Crops Training for Agents - September 27, Fort Scott

By Megan Kennelly

Do you answer questions about soil and/or vegetables? If you answered "yes," then this training might be for you.

The overall goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive training program for agents about soil health with specific applications to vegetable cropping. The project team includes Megan Kennelly (Plant Pathology), Cary Rivard (Horticulture), DeAnn Presley (Agronomy), and Raymond Cloyd (Entomology).

The workshop is free, and lunch will be provided. Mileage costs can be covered by the Kansas SARE program as described on our project website (see below).

To minimize "classroom time" (and maximize active hands-on learning and field visits) participants will be asked to view eight (30-minute MAX) webinars prior to the workshop.

The project website is www.soilhealthbootcamp.com, with links there to the registration page, agenda, location details, webinars, and some resources.

You can also contact Megan Kennelly, kennelly@ksu.edu; or Kim Oxley, koxley@ksu.edu.
