SWCS 75th International Annual Conference

July 26 - July 29

Join us at the 75th SWCS International Annual Conference on July 26 – 29, 2020 in Des Moines, Iowa!

This year’s conference theme, “Expanding Horizons: Where Conservation Meets Innovation,” evokes images of the expansive views of the region and the deep and varied soil horizons that make Iowa’s farmland some of the most productive in the world. This year’s theme also speaks to the broadening of individual perceptions and experiences as attendees discover new concepts, partners, and advancements in soil and water research.

The conference will feature the latest ideas, technologies, and practices and foster a dialogue around their adoption. Through workshops, sessions, symposia, tours, exhibits, and demonstrations, cutting-edge research and practice developments in soil health, water quality, and resource management will be shared. Scientists and practitioners will present their work at the field, farm, and watershed scale across an array of private and public arenas. Researchers and conservationists will team up with farmers to share lessons learned and the environmental outcomes of on-farm trials, monitoring, and state-of-the-art precision agricultural tools. Applications of social theories and examples of successful outreach and education will enable attendees to identify ways to scale up grassroots efforts. Participants will also hear about policy and economic developments that build a framework to increase conservation adoption and support future generations.
