2019 Soil and Water Stewardship Week
April 28-May 5, 2019
Soil and Water Stewardship Week is sponsored by the National Association of Conservation Districts.
2019 marks the 64th year of the NACD Stewardship Week.
The theme for 2019 is: "Life in the Soil: DIG DEEPER"
Soil is the foundation for many of the items we use daily. Food, clothing, clean water, homes and many more daily needs. Healthy soil equals healthy food, which in turn makes a healthy you!
The Waseca SWCD can answer any questions you may have about soil health. There are many ways area farmers are already using practices to create and maintain healthy soils. Some of these practices include cover crops, no-till or strip till and diverse rotations. These practices work hand in hand to protect and maintain healthy soil by increasing organic matter and improving microbial activity. This in turn increases water infiltration, improves pollinators and wildlife, and often times betters yields as the soil continues to improve.
