The fourth Healthy Soils for Healthy Waters symposium was held as part of the Conservation Symposia at the National Association of Conservation Districts Annual Meeting on February 1st, 2017 in Denver, Colorado. Read our post-symposium summary.

Soil and water research and policy leaders, initiated by The Ohio State University with support from Greenleaf Advisors, LLC, and the University of Arkansas, launched a workshop and symposia series dedicated to the development of multidisciplinary and whole system management practices for the agricultural lands that impact our nation’s waters (HSHW Flyer).

The December 2015 symposium was part of the Nutrient Management and Edge of Field Monitoring (from the Great Lakes to the Gulf) Conference led by the University of Arkansas and the Soil & Water Conservation Society on behalf of the Hypoxia Task Force and SERA 46.

The series has been organized around the development of data-driven, region-specific case studies highlighting Best Management Practices (BMPs) to reduce nutrient exports to water resources. At the September 2014 Workshop, participants presented and discussed current nutrient management options, performance data, and their efficacy at multiple scales.
