The Soil Health Partnership is launching phase two of its pilot Associate Program and will invite 75 farmers to enroll in 2019.
The organization says the effort will enable more farmers to join the partnership in its mission of using science and data to support farmers in adopting agricultural practices that improve the economic and environmental sustainability of the farm.
Joining the Associate Program during the pilot phase will give farmers access to no-cost soil health sampling and results. The program will provide data insights and reports on how making a change, like growing cover crops, impacts their soil.
After enrolling 25 farms in the pilot program in 2018, phase two will bring the number of associate sites to 100. The partnership plans a full-scale launch of the Associate Program for 2020, when even more farmers can join.
