With more than 25 years of field experience with the USDA’s National Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Ray Archuleta is widely regarded for his hands-on approach to analyzing and comparing soil health in a variety of tillage systems throughout the U.S. and overseas. Archuleta’s belief that promoting healthy strip-till soils requires following the lead of nature has solidified his reputation as a leading advocate for conservation tillage systems and earned him the nickname, ‘Ray the Soils Guy.’ “Healthy soil doesn’t want to be disturbed, and it wants to be covered perpetually,” he says. “And remember: The soil and plant are one — they are not separate.” During this premier lecture series general session, Archuleta will discuss how to use diversity in cropping systems for improving soil function and help strip-tillers learn the logistics of soil health.
