Producers are encouraged to attend soil amendment presentation

Farmers, gardeners and all others who want to create healthier, more fertile soil may want to attend an upcoming presentation hosted by Sandusky River Watershed Coalition.

Presenters will explain how gypsum can be used as a soil amendment 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 25, at the Seneca County Fairgrounds Pavilion, 100 Hopewell Ave., Tiffin.

The public is invited to attend.

“Early fall is the ideal time to make soil amendments to improve quality for future planting,” said Cindy Brooks, watershed specialist for the Sandusky River Watershed Coalition. “This presentation can help professional and hobby farmers and gardeners learn how gypsum can be used to enhance soil health for their future production.”

The evening will feature Dr. Warren Dick of The Ohio State University, who has studied the use of gypsum to improve soil health. The evening will also include an update on Senate Bill 1, which restricts spreading of manure and other fertilizers, and water quality updates from the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The Sandusky River Watershed Coalition is a program administered by WSOS Community Action Commission.
