The goal of Stories From The Soil is to advance the collaborative and innovative soil health efforts occurring across the United States by sharing the soil management practices of leading growers, researchers, and land stewards. There has been tremendous progress in recent years in better understanding the importance of soil health practices to provide agricultural and horticultural productivity and sustainability.
Cover crops provide numerous soil health advantages, including erosion prevention, improved soil structure, and increased organic matter. But, does one size fit all? In this weeks episode, we dig deeper with Dr. Abbey Wick, Assistant Professor, Extension Soil Health Specialist at North Dakota State University (@NDSUsoilhealth).
Tim Hammerich is the host and he went around the US filming farmers, researchers and extension about how they are using soil health building practices.
