Range Tailgate 2: Cows, Compost + Carbon

Date: Tue, Aug 27th 2019, 9:00am - 11:30am
Location: Private address - directions given to registrants only
Description:

The Sonoma RCD and Sonoma Mountain Institute invite ranchers and prospective ranchers to come learn the latest findings from our Healthy Soils Demonstration Project! Starting in 2018, on a private 300-acre ranch owned by the Sonoma Mountain Institute, this demonstration field trail was established to look at how compost application influences soil health and forage productivity on a working rangeland. Our tailgate will include a discussion on the comparison of our baseline vs year 1 soil samples on both treatment and control plots, as well as a discussion of practice adoption pros and cons from the ranch manager. We’ll also hear from professionals on how to determine the best type of compost for your ranch.
