In this video, Ray Archuleta of the Soil Health Academy and Understanding Ag, LLC, demonstrates the use of an infiltration ring as a soil-health assessment tool. Ray compares infiltration rates of two soils within the same field: one that has no plant cover and one that is under plant cover and has cover-crop residue. This demonstration took place on Adam Chappell’s farm in Cotton Plant, Arkansas.
