  • TODAYS TALK

    • Soil Health Intro• US Ag Census• Current SHI Projects• NRCS Tech Notes • Academic Advances

  • SOIL HEALTH IS:The continued capacity of the

    soil to function as a vital living ecosystem

    within ecosystem and land use boundaries, to sustain

    biological productivity, maintain the quality of air

    and environments, and promote plant, animal, and

    human health.

  • SOIL HEALTH IS:The continued

    capacity of soil to function as a vital living ecosystem

    that sustains plants, animals,

    and humans

  • SOIL HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS

  • USDA CENSUS: “NO-TILL”

    • Respondents determine their tillage category

    • Acres increased from 96 mill to 104 mill

    - 8.3% increase• 37% of arable acres

    reported no-till• Tennessee has 78.6%

  • CENSUS: PERCENT AVAILABLE CROPLAND WITH “NO-TILL”2017

  • USDA CENSUS: COVER CROPS

    • Acres increased from 10.3 mill to 15.4 mill

    - 50% increase• Number of farms

    - 15% increase• People who already cover

    cropped, added acres• 11 states has > ¼ of crop

    land planted to cover crops
