Sponsorship:

The first annual DIRT Workshop will focus on innovative practices in soil health, research guiding management recommendations and technology available to support on-farm application. Soil health experts are brought together to share information using breakout sessions paired with demonstrations, discussion groups and panels. There is also plenty of time for building relationships between sessions. Bringing together multiple resources over a two-day period streamlines information sharing and optimizes on-farm adoption of soil health building practices.

Your sponsorship and/or exhibiting of available equipment and products provides mechanisms for getting the job done on-farm while at the same time lowering the cost for farmers to join the conversation at the DIRT Workshop.
