A series of three Conference Call-in events on Soil Balancing are scheduled this fall: October 17, November 14, and December 12. Each event will bring together a panel of farmers, growers, agricultural advisors, and researchers to share their perspectives and experiences. Those with an interest in this topic may call in to listen to the conversation and to contribute questions or comments of their own.
Soil Balancing is an approach to soil management which is practiced widely by organic farmers, but is relatively untested by research. A multidisciplinary team at Ohio State is working to develop a more complete and widely shared understanding of soil balancing. Efforts include documenting effects on crops and soils when soil balancing is used, and gathering insight on the ways soil balancing is understood and practiced among researchers, farmers, and consultants.
