New York Soil Health for Healthy Food, Profitable Farms, and Protection of Natural Resources

Interest in soil health practices such as reducing tillage, planting winter cover crops, and using compost amendments has expanded greatly in recent years, yet constraints to adoption persist. Our project facilitates collaboration among the many on-going efforts across the state to implement research, outreach, and policy solutions to address these constraints.
