Hoosier Chapter Fall Workshop and Annual Meeting
Conservation Economics and New Technology to Improve Soil Health
November 8, 2013, 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM
Beck’s Hybrids Headquarters, Atlanta, Indiana
Understanding the customers we serve is important in our quest to improve soil health and get more conservation on the ground. Technology is changing fast, but unfortunately not in widespread use—in some cases, farmers are out ahead of the conservation planners. Are there ways to close the gap? Economics are playing a big role in the adoption of good conservation management practices. Join a discussion designed for professional conservationists, academia, farmers, educators, and others interested in advancing conservation in Indiana.
Topics include social indicators‐why farmers adopt or choose not to adopt new conservation practices, precision farming, seed technology, conservation economics, the economics and data on installation of conservation practices, and more!
Speakers include Tom Buman, Agren Inc.; Linda Prokopy, Purdue University; Lauren Cartwright, Economist, NRCS, Missouri; Kevin Cavanaugh, Beck’s Hybrids; and Rob Chapman, Extension Wildlife Specialist, Purdue University.
Registration deadline is November 1st.
