Hunt – Soil for Water: Agricultural Resilience Clinic with Nicole Masters

October 4, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

$70 – $130

Friday Game Dinner at The Hunt Store $35

Friday and Saturday $130 (both days include lunch)* ONLY 18 AVAILABLE

Internationally-acclaimed agroecologist Nicole Masters of New Zealand will join NCAT specialists, HMI Certified Educators, and other regenerative agriculture experts for two activity-filled days exploring agricultural resilience. In the dynamic and sometimes unforgiving climates of Texas, any agricultural operation needs to be ready to cope with and recover from adversity. By holding more water in the soil and fostering the right soil microbiology we can buffer changes in temperature and mitigate the effects of extreme weather patterns.

This two-day clinic will provide insights into soil health, soil health indicators and monitoring techniques, and plant health. Questions Nicole will address include:

  • How do we build soil structure to improve water and mineral cycles?
  • What is the role of soil microbes in pasture quality and resiliency?
  • What are your weeds telling you?
  • How do we manage weeds, disease, and insects?
  • How do we shift from invasive grasses to native grasses?
  • How does adaptive multi-paddock grazing encourage resiliency?
  • What monitoring strategies can we use to be sure we are making improvement and moving towards our goals?
  • How can we reduce the need for chemical inputs without reducing yields?

* No single tickets for Saturday will be sold. Per Nicole’s request, people who join the hands-on portion of the clinic on Saturday must attend on Friday.

Please reserve your space for the clinic and the dinner using the form below.

Lodging options for this training are limited and we suggest you book as soon as possible to ensure your space.
