AMES, Iowa – The third Soil Health Conference will be held in Ames on Feb. 4-5, 2019. The event will consist of two full days of presentations on a wide variety of topics concerning soil health, with invited guest speakers from around the country.
FACTS is an ongoing project developed to forecast and evaluate real-time soil-crop dynamics in specific ISU fields. Predictions and measurements will be frequently updated as new information becomes available during the growing season.
What we do:
Recent research project objectives include:
- Estimating cropping and tillage system impacts on soil erosion across Iowa
- Identifying wheel loads necessary cause soil compaction in Northeast China
- Estimating soil loss associated with ephemeral gully formation
- Estimating phosphorus loss in runoff water based on soil erosion and water runoff estimates
