Soil Health Tutorial
The Land Stewardship Project's new publication, Soil Health, Water & Climate Change: A Pocket Guide to What You Need to Know, provides an introduction to the latest innovations in science and farming related to building soil health, and explains how implementing such practices on a wide-scale basis can make agriculture a powerful force for creating a landscape that is good for our water and our climate. The pocket guide includes mini-profiles of farmers in the Upper Midwest who are utilizing cover cropping, managed rotational grazing of livestock, no-till, and other methods to protect the landscape's surface while increasing biological activity below, thus creating a resilient, "soil smart" type of agriculture. Free print copies are available, and the publication can also be downloaded as a PDF or mobile app.
