Human Health and Soil Health: Facts, Fiction and Future

Speaker: Dr. Jordon Wade, Assistant Professor, School of Natural Resources, University of Missouri

Date: Oct. 13, 2022, noon-1 p.m.




Linkages between human health and soil health have long been explored, yet reliable information on those linkages are lacking or even absent. In that informational vacuum, misconceptions and misinformation can hinder productive research and evidence-based policy. This talk offered a brief overview about the linkages we do know, those we should forget and those we should explore.


About the SpeakerJordon Wade

Broadly, Dr. Wade’s research is primarily in soil health and nutrient management. His work bridges between the worlds of applied and basic research in high intensity cropping systems. Specifically, his research focuses on developing robust measurements of soil health and fertility and integrating them into decision support tools for growers and policymakers alike.
