Schedule: Soil Science Seminar Series - Spring 2023

Join us every Wednesday from 4:10 – 5:00 pm

Agronomy – Rm 2020  

-or –

Via Zoom

We have some very interesting presentations planned, including speakers from ISU’s Bioeconomy Institute, Meiji University (Kawasaki, Japan), USDA-NLAE, USDA-NRCS, and Purdue University.
There are two weeks when we will not have a public seminar: March 1 and March 8. (There will also be no seminar during the week of spring break.)
Later in the semester, we will transition to presentations by our own soil science graduate students. These presentations will have non-traditional formats this semester, and you will not want to miss them. We will update the schedule with more details about the titles and formats for the student presentations around mid-semester.
