An event which may be of interest to our subscribers posted here on behalf of the Welsh Soils Discussion Group:
The Welsh Soils Discussion Group are pleased to announce the Spring Meeting: Soil – the Essentials, in Aberystwyth on Wednesday 3 April (2019).
The day will provide an introduction to soils and the issues surrounding around them. We have a range of specialists to deliver the training and help in discussions.
The day is aimed at persons for whom (a) soil is a part of their job but not a major component or (b) people with a general interest in soil. The aim is to provide a baseline level of knowledge, network and encourage discussion.
We will have talks on:
What soils are: (Ian Rugg, WG)
Soil threats in Wales: (Jack Hannam, Cranfield University)
Soils and Farming: (Paul Newell-Price, ADAS)
Soils and Ecology: – including soil biodiversity (TBA)
