Organizer Jimmy Emmons Highlights Soil Health Education Opportunities at Upcoming OACD Meeting Next month, the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts will host its annual State Meeting in Downtown Oklahoma City at the Embassy Suites near the OU Medical Center on February 24-25th. For the third year now, this meeting will feature an extra day of programming focused on soil health development. This full-day event will take place on Tuesday, February 26th.


Dewey County farmer and conservationist, Jimmy Emmons, has served as president of the OACD for the past two years and will retire from that position this year. In anticipation of this event, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays caught up with Emmons to talk about this year’s program for producers and land managers interested in attending. You can listen to that full conversation by clicking or tapping the LISTEN BAR below at the bottom of the page.


“We’re really excited,” Emmons remarked about the soil health event. “It continues to grow. We had a large crowd last year and we’re going to have another one this year.”


The program agenda is packed once again, according to Emmons, with an full lineup of soil health experts and conservationists who will present on a variety of innovative and intriguing new methodology that has been developed with the themes of regenerative agriculture in mind.


Emmons highlighted three speakers in particular, including Adam Chappell of Arkansas who will focus on no-till practices utilizing flood irrigation; Brendan Rockey of Colorado who will focus his lecture on his success with potatoes as a cover crop and the improvements that can be made to soil health with minimal investment; plus, Steve Tucker of Colorado who will speak to the marketing and profitability opportunities available to no-till farmers.


“I’m so excited to be a part of the team that put this thought process together and making it an extra day at our state meeting,” Emmons said. “I think the response speaks for itself.”
