Among other things, students received lessons in soil health and were introduced to MO DIRT.
MO DIRT hosted another soil health survey training, this time in Sikeston, MO. Participants were invited to take part in the MO DIRT citizen science project by performing their own soil health surveys.
The training included information about a variety of soil health parameters, as well as how to measure these parameters using the MO DIRT soil health survey kit.
Twenty eight students from Kirksville High School visited the Danforth Center to tour the facilities. They also received classes on soil science and root biology.
