Conference Webinars

Due to Covid-19 we cancelled our Participants Conference for 2020. Instead, we hosted a series of five webinars.

Covering each of our four programs and a special project, the webinars were packed full of interesting information about the latest Soil CRC research. We had great attendance and very engaging questions.
