A Unique Partnership Focused on Improving Soil Health

The Soil Health Partnership is a farmer-led initiative focused on identifying, testing and measuring management practices to improve soil health and enhance sustainable agricultural production.

Many farmers across the country are implementing innovative management practices that result in economic and environmental benefits. The Soil Health Partnership builds upon the work of these farmers to provide connections between on-farm practices and improving soil health.

The following organizations provide funding and/or technical support for the partnership:ƒ
  • Monsanto
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (Natural Resources Conservation Service)
  • Midwest Row Crops Collaborative
  • Walton Family Foundation
  • The Nature Conservancy
  • Environmental Defense Fund

“We have assembled a diverse group of excellent partners in this program,” said Dr. Nick Goeser, executive director of the Soil Health Partnership. “They each bring a unique perspective to the program that challenges us to think about working with farmers and agronomists in new ways. Their input and engagement continues to be invaluable in our efforts to tackle difficult issues and develop effective solutions and strategies.”
