The Soil Health Partnership is pleased to be a part of a $20 million grant for soil health, announced Dec. 5. Read the news release.

We are identifying, testing and measuring management practices to improve soil health and benefit farmers’ operations.  Many farmers across the country are implementing innovative management practices that result in economic and environmental benefits. We are building upon the work of these farmers to provide connections between on-farm practices and improving soil health.

 

We believe the results of this farmer-led project will provide a platform for sharing information from farmers to farmers, with the support and resources to benefit farmers’ bottom lines and agricultural sustainability.  We are helping provide the spark for greater understanding and more broadly implementing agricultural practices that work best.
