Coffee County Soil Conservation held the fifth annual Soil Health/Regenerative Ag Field Day Thursday to demonstrate theory and practice of soil management techniques.
About 150 people attended the field day that rand from 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., with guest speakers, a farmer panel discussion and rainfall simulator demonstration.
“We’ve had several good talks on regenerative agriculture,” said Allen Willmore, Natural Resources Conservation Service. “We are looking at utilizing various tools to make crops do better and create a cleaner environment in the way we farm. Our soils are a degraded resource that needs to be regenerated.”
The Coffee County Soil Conservation District hosted the event partnered with the National Resources Conservation Services and local Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
The event was free and offered points for those with Tenn. pesticide applicator license in five categories, C01-Agricultural Plant, C04-Seed Treatment, C10-Demo and Research and C12-Pesticide Dealer.
