People might regret that the inaugural Soil Health Innovations Conference has been moved from Bozeman to an online event.

But there is a silver lining.

The conference will offer leading experts and innovative farmers from around the U.S. sharing the latest in soil science, best practices in soil management, and the emerging technologies that will drive the future of sustainable and regenerative agriculture.

That’s a lot to take in. And with the conference online, people don’t have to pick and choose which speakers, panels, exhibits, and sponsors to fit into the day. They don’t have to miss a thing.

The conference’s offerings will be recorded during the conference. And once people have registered, they will have exclusive access to it all for six months. It will all be right there on their phone or mobile device to watch whenever they want from the comfort of their home or office — or wherever they feel comfortable these days.

The conference content also will be available to registrants for three months on their home or office computers.

NCAT is sponsoring the conference in cooperation with USDA Rural Development, Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education and Montana State University.
