Groups Conducting Surveys on Soil Health Challenges
USAgNet - 04/12/2018
A regional team dedicated to increasing access to soil health resources is working to gather ideas on the condition of the soil and better understand soil health challenges through a newly designed survey. The Soil Health Nexus says its five-minute survey is intended for farmers, agribusiness consultants, educators, and agency staff and can be accessed at tinyurl.com/soilhealthsurvey.
The team is funded through the North Central Region Water Network, which is comprised of representatives from 12 land-grant universities. The North Central Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, InterTribal Ag Council, National Soil
Health Partnership and USDA's Natural Resource Conservation Service are also working on the project.
The team recently released a series of reports synthesizing and interpreting the latest science on linkages between manure management, soil health, and water quality.
