Permalink Major Grant to Support Soil Health Effort

The Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research has announced a $9.4 million grant to the Soil Health Institute, the Soil Health Partnership, and The Nature Conservancy to improve soil health and, ultimately, support positive economic and environmental outcomes for American farmers. The grant is being matched for a total investment of nearly $20 million. The goal of this project is to support collaborative research and education that accelerates adoption and benefits of soil health management systems nationally. This project will help the industry adopt standardized measurements to evaluate and improve soil health while expanding education and tools for local farmers, agronomists, and landowners. Collaborators will take an integrated, three-pronged approach. The Soil Health Institute will develop and test soil health measurements; the Soil Health Partnership will implement and evaluate soil health-promoting practices on working farms; and The Nature Conservancy will work with non-operator landowners to encourage use of science-based soil health practices.
