Farmers and landowners can learn about the soil health journeys of ten Minnesota farmers in a new report, “Soil Health Case Studies Vol 3.”
Jared Luhman, Soil Health Lead for the Sustainable Farming Association, visited ten farms across southeast Minnesota and interviewed the farmers. He then used those conversations to develop case studies profiling the soil health management practices these farmers have implemented on their operations. The farmers featured in the case studies were selected with the help of the Sustainable Farming Association of Minnesota (SFA), University of Minnesota Extension’s Southeast Regional Sustainable Development Partnership, and an advisory board of farmers, researchers, and organization staff.
The Southeast Minnesota volume of the Soil Health Case Studies is available online at z.umn.edu/SoilHealthCaseStudiesSE2020 or https://www.sfa-mn.org/soil-health-case-studies-2020/.
