Soil Health/Erosion Reduction

By farming using soil health principles and systems that include no-till, cover cropping and diverse rotations, more and more farmers are actually increasing their soil’s organic matter and improving microbial activity. As a result, farmers are sequestering more carbon, increasing water infiltration, improving wildlife and pollinator habitat—all while harvesting better profits and often better yields.

Though the district and NRCS programs there are funding opportunities for things like: no till, mulching, cover cropping, irrigation efficiency improvements, vegetative filter strips on field borders and roadside ditches.
