Building Healthy Soils

The tenth annual California Bioresources Alliance Symposium was held November 4-5, 2015 with a focus on building healthy soils.

Building on the governor's Healthy Soils Initiative, the symposium explored the application of organic residual products in improving soil quality and moisture retention, setting standards for these products and developing best management practices. Sessions also featured work currently being done with digestates and biochar, and a session in conjunction with the Association of Compost Producers on compost policy and marketing.

The two-day event was co-hosted by UC Davis Extension and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region 9.
