Climate change represents a major challenge to our horticultural endeavors with its extremes in temperature and precipitation. This session will examine recent growing season conditions in southeast Wisconsin portending future challenges, discuss key soil health indicators included in the Cornell Soil Health Scorecard, and offer tips to improve the indicators to improve overall soil function to meet the challenges of climate change.
