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.
Produced by the Soil Health Institute, Living Soil is a documentary about soil health featuring innovative farmers and soil health experts from diverse regions throughout the United States.
“From now until 2060 we are going to have to produce as much food as we produced in the last 500 years.”
