Soil is one of our greatest resources. It is the foundation for agriculture, and it plays a critical role in protecting the air we breathe, water we drink, and food we eat. As farmers prepare for the future, they cannot overlook the importance of soil health. In these guides we examine how farmers can improve soil health through regenerative practices like no-till and cover cropping. These practices can improve soil structure and water-holding capacity, combat water and nutrient loss, and prevent erosion.
We currently have guides available for growers in North Dakota, Montana, Eastern Idaho, and Southern Idaho.
