Two great conferences come together: Western Canada Conference on Soil Health & Western Canadian Grazing Conference.
Farming and ranching for soil health enhances biodiversity and increases biological activity, both of which are absent in current production technology. In both cases integrating plant diversity, keeping the soil covered, maintaining living roots as long as possible, and minimal soil disturbance leads to reduced crop inputs, greater infiltration and water holding capacity, and a myriad of environmental and social benefits. Soil health is greatly enhanced when practiced in conjunction with animal agriculture.
The Western Canada Conference on Soil Health & Grazing Team is made up of several
not-for-profit associations throughout Alberta.
