American Farmland Trust has released four “Accelerating Soil Health” case studies to assist farmers who are curious about soil health and technical service providers who want to help farmers adopt soil health practices. The case studies were developed in partnership with USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service under a Conservation Innovation Grant and join four others released in July 2019. The four two-page case studies feature Tom and Dan Rogers, California almond growers who are implementing compost, mulching, and nutrient management; Jim, Julie, and Josh Ifft, Illinois corn and soybean farmers implementing no-till and cover crops; Dan Lane, an Ohio corn and soybean farmer implementing strip-till with banded dry fertilizer and cover crops; and John and Jim Macauley, New York beef and crop farmers implementing no-till, cover crops, and nutrient management.
