Cover Crops and Proven Success with Soil Health Practices to be featured in Oct. 29 Virtual Meeting

Wed, 21 Oct 2020 10:50:43 CDT

Cover Crops and Proven Success with Soil Health Practices to be featured in Oct. 29  Virtual Meeting The Emmons farm in western Oklahoma’s Dewey County reaps the rewards of investing in Soil Health. Jimmy and Ginger Emmons have been adding multiple soil health practices to their fields for several years. Please join the Dewey County Conservation District and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) for a Zoom meeting discussing “Cover crops and proven success with Soil Health practices!” The Zoom meeting is scheduled for 12:30 p.m., (Central Time) Oct. 29, 2020.

In advance of the meeting, we would ask that you watch a video filmed at the Emmons farm in Dewey County on cover crops and improved soil water management https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gsEqzRhQMxA&t=739s . By viewing prior to attending the meeting, participants will be better prepared to ask questions and participate in discussions.

Also during the meeting, Paul Clark, NRCS Resource Conservationist, will present an overview of successes in Dewey County.

Through the years of experimenting and implementing practices, the Emmons’ soils have changed significantly for the better. Jimmy, a former Leopold Conservation Award Recipient, has increased organic matter in the top 8 to 10 inches of soil. His water infiltration rates have surpassed standard soil mapping data and profitability has increased with the decrease of inputs.

In the video you watch prior to the virtual meeting, you will hear Jimmy's story of the substantial progress made. You will also hear from soil scientists. Steve Alspach, NRCS State Soil Scientist, discusses cover crop plants and benefits and Greg Scott, Oklahoma Conservation Commission (OCC) Soil Scientist, will tell the story of the soil.

Register in advance for this meeting, at:


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We look forward to having you join us on Oct. 29.
