Farmers, agronomists, and conservation professionals from around the state of Wisconsin are invited to attend the new, Wisconsin Water and Soil Health Conference, WWASH, set to be held on December 7-8 at the Kalahari Conference Center in Wisconsin Dells. The WWASH conference is building upon the legacies of two pivotal events, the Wisconsin Cover Crop Conference and the Discovery Farms Conference.
This all-encompassing conference will cover all things water quality, cover crops, and soil health with access to two full days of learning opportunities from three distinguished keynotes and real-world examples from farmer panels and roundtable discussions. Register now for an early bird discount!
The three featured keynotes include:
- Dr. Rodrigo Werle (UW-Madison) Fighting weeds with covers! Lessons from 5 years of cereal rye cover crop management for weed suppression research in Wisconsin
- Dr. Merrin Macrae (University of Waterloo) Phosphorus losses in cold agricultural regions and the importance of targeting conservation practices
- Mitchell Hora (Continuum Ag and Iowa Farmer) Using cover crops on the offensive: Experiences from Iowa
Attendees will experience thought-provoking discussions and walk away with a better understanding of the intersections of agronomy, water, and soil health.
The 2023 conference is hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Madison CALS Nutrient and Pest Management Program and the Division of Extension Agriculture Water Quality Program.
