Developing the Science of Soil Health


At the 2016 National Association of Conservation Districts, the Soil Health Institute informed attendees about the future of soil health science.  Lane Nordlund spoke with Bill Buckner, the President and CEO of the Noble Foundation about goals and future plans of the Soil Health Institute.  

From the Soil Health Institute Website:  “The Soil Health Institute is an evolution of the Soil Renaissance, an initiative established by the Noble Foundation and Farm Foundation in 2013. The effort was a convening of thought leaders, growers and organizations across industry sectors that looked at soil health and its role in a vibrant, profitable, sustainable natural ecosystem. As the group identified and addressed the diverse and complex issues regarding soil health, it was clear a national organization was needed to provide information and drive change.”
