Soil Health Institute Releases Comprehensive Strategy for Enhancing Soil Health

As part of its annual meeting, the Soil Health Institute has released its comprehensive strategy for enhancing soil health. Dr. Wayne Honeycutt, CEO of the Soil Health Institute, explained, “[A] key component of our strategy is to assess the impacts of soil health adoption on profitability and economic risk. Another is to identify the most effective measurements for soil health because farmers cannot be expected to manage what they cannot measure. We then need to provide workshops on locally-relevant management practices proven by other farmers to work for them.” In addition, Honeycutt described how information must be supported by a strong research and development program that producers, policy analysts, and society can trust.
