The Soil Health Institute announces methods for evaluating soil health indicators at a continental scale

The concept of soil health is gaining widespread attention because it promotes agricultural practices that are not only good for the farmer and rancher, but also good for the environment. However, lack of widely-applicable measurements and methods for assessing soil health are significant barriers to adopting soil health practices and systems. To address this need, the Soil Health Institute (SHI), in collaboration with the Soil Health Partnership (SHP) and The Nature Conservancy (TNC), received a $9.4 million grant from the Foundation for Food and Agriculture Research (FFAR) to match a similar amount provided by other donors to advance soil health science and implement soil health management practices.
