The 2016 Soil Health Summit has kicked off in Indianapolis.
Only two years old, the Soil Health Partnership has a goal to learn more about soil health and share the information with farmers. For example, the organizations five-year strategy: to identify, test and measure management practices that improve soil health and benefit farmers’ operations. Right now, many farmers across the country are implementing innovative management practices that result in economic and environmental benefits. We plan to build upon the work of these farmers to provide connections between on-farm practices and improving soil health.
The Soil Health Partnership is a National Corn Growers Association Initiative, with Initial Support From Monsanto and The Walton Family Foundation and With Technical Support From The Nature Conservancy.
