In collaboration with their program partners, CTAHR’s Center of Rural Agricultural Training and Entrepreneurship (CRATE) and Sustainable and Organic Agriculture Program (SOAP) will host two educational field days focusing on the soil.

Part 1 workshop topics will include an introduction to soil health and its indicators, benefits of no-till farming systems and cover-cropping, and development of a cover crop calculator for Hawai‘i. Hands-on demonstrations include a soil-slaking test and assays for water runoff and water percolation properties with simulated rainfall. Participants can bring their own soil for assessment; find out about compost tea-brewing systems; and check out the compost quality booth, the display of different types of cover crops, and tea-fertigation injection systems.

Soil Workshop Part 2 will be held on Saturday, Feb. 7 at the Poamoho Research Station from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon.
