Soil structure field day July 13
Digging Hole
Digging a hole in the ground is one way to check soil structure.  There will be a soil pit at the July 13 field day for participants to see what’s happening below the surface (like root growth).

With the lack of rain this summer it is critical that local soil’s structure is in the best possible shape to harvest every drop of moisture possible to grow our crops and food. A field day on Tuesday, July 13 will examine the importance of soil structure in attaining good soil health to learn more.
