A pair of free University of California workshops will provide tips on managing soil that promise better crop quality and reduced use of fertilizers and pesticides.

DAVIS, Calif. — A pair of free University of California workshops will explore new ways of managing soil that promise long-term sustainability, better crop quality and reduced use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

The workshops will be held at 11 a.m. Dec. 10 in UC-Davis’ Plant and Environmental Sciences Building 3001 and at 11 a.m. Dec. 11 at the UC West Side Research and Extension Center, 17353 W. Oakland Ave., Five Points, Calif.

UC experts say innovative soil-enhancement practices are being researched and implemented around the world but haven’t caught on much in California. The workshops will allow nationally known proponents of soil health to talk about their soil-supporting practices.
