Project Details

In order to achieve their mission, the Soil Health Project is:

Recruiting a network of demonstration farms that will serve as showcases for other farmers to investigate innovative soil management practices, including reduced tillage systems, cover crops and advanced nutrient management.

Establishing research protocols that will allow us to measure the connection between a diverse range of soil management practices and soil health.

Publishing findings and recommendations that highlight the economic and environmental benefits of healthy soil.

Supporting networking and technical assistance that will help growers and their advisors make decisions that will result in positive changes for the profitability of their operation and the sustainability of the soil.
