Unlock the Secrets of Soil Health
To help producers discover the basics and benefits of soil health – as well as ways to improve it – NRCS recently launched a soil health awareness and education effort titled “Unlock the Secrets in the Soil.” The effort includes the distribution of fact sheets, brochures, videos, and multimedia announcements, as well as local field days. In addition, NRCS will be making program changes to assist farmers in trying the healthy soil methods on their own farms. (click here for more information)
