The Soil Health Partnership is an organization that promotes the adoption of soil health practices for economic and environmental benefit. By building a peer-to-peer network, the Soil Health Partnership partners with farmers to explore the financial, economic and environmental benefits and risks of soil health practices. The Soil Health Partnership collects on-farm data to evaluate the impacts of soil health practices on the soil, the environment, and the farmer’s bottom line.
Deerfield Farms began working with the Soil Health Partnership in 2015 to explore the economic and environmental impacts of long-term soil health practices. In the video above, Deerfield Farms Manager, Brian Boyle, discusses the cover crop and tillage practices he has implemented with the help of the Soil Health Partnership.
