Dr. Anthony O’Geen, Soil Specialist, Land Air and Water Resources Department, UC Davis

In this workshop, area pasture managers participated in a discussion about Marin and Sonoma soils. Topics of discussion were: How can managers avoid compaction and increase water storage in their soils? What prescriptions are there for timing and intensity of use that will improve soil conditions, pasture and rangeland production, and problems with runoff? These and other soil properties and management topics were covered during presentations and field site visits.
