Program Helping Producers Build Healthy Soil Expands to More States
A Texas livestock operation managed by Maggie Eubank’s family is one of the ranches improving soil health through NCAT’s Soil for Water program, reports the Albuquerque Journal. Fifteen Texas properties are enrolled in the program and building soil using practices such as removing invasive plants, no-till planting, rotational grazing, and monitoring. Participating producers share their experiences in a peer-to-peer network. The program is expanding this summer to New Mexico and five other states.
