This Week's Focus: Soil

We will begin (and end) our study of Geology, Soil, and Land Management and begin our study of Food Production and Pesticides this week. Specifically, we will be focusing on the geologic cycle, soil, threats to soil, soil management, food production, and pesticides. More information about the content, the location of each handout, and helpful hints for each assignment can be found in the Module 9: Geology, Soil, and Land Management Course Resources and Module 10: Food Production and Pesticides Course Resources.
