The Edmunds County Conservation District along with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service invites you to their Annual Soil Health Clinic on Monday, February 3, 2020. The free meal starts at 5 p.m. at the Ipswich High School lunchroom and presentations to follow at 6 p.m.

The agenda includes Centrol crop consultant, Lee Briese, of Edgely, N.D. Lee will discuss his experiences working with low producing salt-effected fields and his strategies to bring these fields back to production. Lee received his B.S. in Crop and Weed Science from Dickinson State University, received his M.S. in Soil Science from North Dakota State, and recently his Doctorate in Plant Health from the University of Nebraska. Lee also brings years of experience as a crop consultant serving 46 growers managing over 85,000 acres. 

Additionally, Dean and Candice Lockner are producers near Ree Heights, who will share their experiences “Working with the Laws of Nature: Water, Wind and Soil”. The Lockner’s were featured in a 2018 “Our Amazing Grasslands” video during which they explained the importance and benefits of diverse grasslands including the positive impact they have on wildlife, pollinator species and soil health. They have worked to increase the plant species diversity of their grasslands and have done quite a bit of work with different types of grazing management, pollinators, and the seeding of perennial grasses.
