2014 North Central Regional Conference
Seventy-six pedologists and related professionals registered to learn about--and contribute to-- the topics of soil survey, soil health, and soil dynamic properties at the 2014 North Central Regional Cooperative Soil survey Conference, held June 2nd through 5th on the campus of Iowa State University. Forty-four of the registrants were USDA--NRCS employees (14 from Iowa, 2 from regional and MLRA offices, and 8 from national postings), and 24 were university employees (7 faculty from ISU, 9 faculty from cooperating universities, and 8 graduate students). The remaining eight registrants were with cooperating agencies from Iowa, Minnesota, or the Federal government. The meeting had three core components: research presentations, technical discussions and updates, and a field trip. The field trip illustrated Iowa soils and mapping issues and opportunities.
