Soil Health Partnership helps farmers focus on soil
"Helping farmers understand what management practices help build healthy soils is a priority for this partnership, and important for everyone in the long run," said Purdue's Kladivko. "I'm happy to be able to offer expertise to help farmers become even better stewards of the environment."
Honeycutt of the USDA agreed about the importance of grounding conservation practices in sound science.
"Enhancing soil health is one of the most important things we can do for this and for future generations," Honeycutt said. "That's because enhancing soil health allows us to simultaneously address so many of our most pressing natural resource needs. It allows us to address water quality, farm profitability, resilience to extreme weather, economic risk, wildlife needs and many others. The Soil Health Partnership will provide a platform to measure and demonstrate these benefits, building on what is known from academic research and connecting it directly to on-farm management approaches."
