The event, to begin 8 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 4, at Banyans Pavilion, will cover several aspects of liming, the effect of low pH on soil health, managing nitrogen to reduce acidification, the economics of soil acidity, and a panel discussion covering microbes, herbicides and agronomy of low pH soils. Speakers include scientists from WSU, the University of Idaho, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the Latah Conservation District.

Continental breakfast, buffet lunch, coffee, snacks and a no-host bar are included with registration for the day. This workshop has been approved for eight Certified Crop Advisor credits.
