The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service has launched a new soil health awareness and education effort to educate the agency's customers and the public about the positive impact healthy soils can have on productivity and conservation. The three key messages of this information campaign are: "Dig a little, learn a lot," "Do not disturb," and "Discover the cover."
The effort features farmers from communities in numerous states—Ohio, Indiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Indiana, Utah, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Montana and Kansas—where growers are increasingly interested in how improved soil health can benefit their operations.
Awareness and education resources of NRCS’s soil health initiative include fact sheets, brochures, videos, web, radio and social media announcements, as well as local field days. And, stay tuned for more soil health resources, tips and grower profiles...including one from the Bay State!
