The North Central Region Soil Health Nexus is a university-led team dedicated to increasing access to research-based soil health knowledge, extension and resources.
The team was created in 2015 with funding from the North Central Region Water Network. The team is structured around research, extension and outreach, and resources and communications with representatives from all 12 North Central Region states.

Soil Health Digital Café Series
The Soil Health Nexus is hosting a series of informal soil health webinars featuring Extension soil health experts and researchers from across the region discussing the latest soil health research, resources, and news. The webinars will take place monthly; they will be an hour in length with 20-minute presentation, followed by 10-minutes of Q&A and then a casual 30-minute Digital Café where attendees can continue to discuss the topic in more depth with Soil Health Nexus members.
There will be no December Digital Café webinar. The next webinar will be held in January 2024.
