Soil Health Advocates – Promoting and Documenting the Benefits of Soil Health Management
A body of research shows the benefits of practices such as strip/no till, cover cropping and crop rotation. Some of these practices can be successful under certain soil and climate conditions, but not in others. More information is needed on what works well and under what conditions. Also, detailed economic and cost benefit information is needed. This project will overcome barriers and significantly increase the number of farmed acres nationwide that are successfully managed for soil health, appropriate to local conditions.
