Thursday, December 5, is World Soil Day and National Corn Growers is joining the Soil Health Partnership in celebrating the growing focus on improved soil health in agriculture.
The SHP effort is cool because they are encouraging farmers to tell their own unique soil health journey! Outside the Ag industry, many folks don’t know about the soil health revolution taking place so don't forget to use the hashtag #mysoilhealthjourney and tag @soilhealthpartnership to join the celebration.
The Nature Conservancy, one of the many groups working with SHP and NCGA, believes a sustainable food system is potentially one of the most significant ways to ensure a future where both nature and people thrive.
Research estimates that improving adopting soil health-promoting practices on at least half of U.S. croplands by 2025 could deliver up to $7.4 billion in water and climate benefits annually. So, Happy Soil Health Day.
