Scholarships Available for Soil Management Summit

The Soil Management Summit (SMS) will be held in-person on December 15-16 at The Park Event Center in St. Cloud, MN. This summit emphasizes proven farmer experience and applied science. Straight from the fields, learn how heavier, colder soils aren’t necessarily the challenge they’re made out to be. Hear from long-time no-till, reduced tillage and cover crop farmers as they share their experiences, so you can be spared the same hard-learned lessons.

The summit features presentations and Q&A with researchers, farmers and agricultural advisors, along with soil health demonstrations, information from vendors and conversations with farmers in your area.

Attendees who attend the entire conference will be offered CCA continuing education units (CEUs).

Cost and Registration

  • $160 Early bird rate (includes CCA credits)

  • $125 Early bird rate for farmers and anyone not seeking CCA credits

  • $180 After November 30
