The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) has awarded $5.23 million in grant funding to 86 projects as part of its Healthy Soils Program. The program encourages farmers and ranchers to implement practices that reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases and improve soil health. The funding is split between 64 incentive programs and 22 demonstration projects, both of which promote widespread adoption of conservation management practices statewide. The Healthy Soils Program stems from the California Healthy Soils Initiative, a collaboration between state agencies to support the development of healthy soils in California.
