Dr. Katie Lewis hosted the 2016 Texas A&M Soils Critique at the Lubbock Research and Extension Center on June 14-15. Over 20 Soil Scientists and Agronomists from Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension, Texas Tech University, and NRCS attended along with several graduate and undergraduate students.

The Texas A&M Soils Critique is held annually to discuss ongoing Soil Science research, extension, and teaching programs and to develop strategies for addressing societal challenges related to the long-term sustainability of soil and the environment through informed and wise stewardship of soil and natural resources for production of food, feed, fiber, and fuel feedstocks.

The next Texas A&M Soils Critique will be hosted by Dr. Jourdan Bell at the Amarillo Research and Extension Center in June/July 2017.
