Healthy Soils, Thriving Farms Convening Sessions

Join FFAR to #CultivateProgress toward Healthy Soils, Thriving Farms

FFAR will host open convening sessions on November 9-10 in Phoenix, AZ, immediately preceding the 2016 International American Society of Agronomy-Crop Science Society of America-Soil Science Society of America Annual Meeting, “Resilience Emerging from Scarcity and Abundance”.

We anticipate a rich and active discussion, with lots of opportunities for interactions and input. Join the conversation to help guide the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) scientific program in the Healthy Soils, Thriving Farms Challenge Area aimed at increasing soil health by building knowledge, fueling innovation, and enabling adoption of existing or new innovative soil health promoting practices.
