State of the Soil; Season 2 Speaker and Presentation Announcements.
Release Date: January 5, 2018
We are pleased to announce Season 2 of State of the Soil. We will go live free for one week; February 19-25th, 2018. This opening week will once again be a free online summit. No traveling costs, no hotel expenses, no time off of the farm.
By offering this event for free this week we hope that anyone who wants to learn can be a part of this experience. Last year we broke the mold for agricultural business and marketing online education. We learned a lot through your help and are excited to bring these lessons to season 2.
This year, because of your feedback, we are making the videos easier to download, shorter interviews that get to the meat of the bone, and less emails. We will also offer a technical guideline a couple of days before to help you optimize your experience.

We will cover some growing techniques, but this conference isn’t a how to grow workshop. It is focused on year round production and how growing is only part of the agribusiness equation. We are looking at our industries past, present, and future. We will discuss how working together will help us all. We are glad you are here and encouraged by your support.
