Kansas Pilot Project Links Internet Access with Soil Health Improvements

The Kansas Departments of Agriculture and Transportation are launching a Heartland Opportunities Markets and Environment (HOME) pilot project. This pilot will provide the infrastructure improvements necessary for farms located near U.S. 83 and U.S. 81 highways in northwest and north central Kansas to gain access to high-speed Internet. In exchange, producers will be asked to implement soil health principles on at least one of their fields. Kansas Soil Health Alliance and No-Till on the Plains are hosting free workshops to introduce the program to producers.
