Join us for free informational event focused on soil health. Lunch will be included and the event will count for growers who need nitrogen management certification. Videos of the speakers' sessions will be made available after the event, but producers who wish to use this event to recertify for nitrogen management must attend in person. 

You'll hear from global soil health expert Dr. Jill Clapperton, as well as NRD water conservationist Dan Leininger, and Associate Nebraska State Climatologist Al Dutcher. Lunch will be catered by Kerry's of McCool.
