American Farmland Trust releases Farmers’ Guides to Soil Health Economics

American Farmland Trust (AFT) has developed a series of two-page guides highlighting the economic costs and benefits of adopting soil health practices for farmers. Soil health practices such as no-till, cover crops, nutrient management and crop rotations have been shown to reduce erosion, maximize water infiltration, improve nutrient cycling, and improve resilience. AFT’s two-page case studies may be useful to farmers and landowners who are curious about soil health practices and whether investing in the practices is worth the risk. AFT also provides free access to case study tools, materials and training documents in their Soil Health Case Study Tool Kit so conservation community members can create their own case studies in their area.
