Webinar of potential interest to CAT members -Susan

WEBINAR: Soil Health and Water
 This week!
December 1, 1:00-2:00 p.m.
Water is often and increasingly a limiting factor in Colorado Agriculture, but soil health practices can help. Soil health and regenerative agriculture are popular concepts and not without reason. By implementing soil health practices, agricultural producers boost productivity and nutrient density, and up the soil's water-holding capacity.
Join us this Thursday December 1 at 1 p.m. for a webinar looking at the connection between soil health and water. We’ll hear about resources and programs available through the Colorado Department of Agriculture, the on-farm implementation of soil health practices, and the positive outcomes seen when tying soil health, watershed health, and ag production together.
With speakers:
Cindy Lair, Colorado Department of Agriculture
Lyn Halliday, Routt County Conservation District and Upper Yampa Watershed Coordinator
Matt Heimerich, Farmer, member of the Water Education Colorado Board of Trustees and the Southeastern Colorado Water Conservancy District Board

 Read about soil health and water and other on-farm or ranch practices and get prepped for the webinar by checking out the summer 2022 issue of Headwaters magazine, How are Colorado Farms and Ranches Managing Water for Tomorrow?
