A mission to advance soil health

Land Core is an independent 501(c)3 organization with a mission to advance soil health policies and programs that create value for farmers, businesses and communities.

We’re building the missing infrastructure, and market-based incentives, that will make the rapid adoption and scalability of soil health possible.

 
 

Why soil health

No soil, no farms, no food.

America is losing 1.7 billion tons of topsoil from croplands every year, windswept and washed away 10 times faster than it is replenished. At this rate, America has an aggregated 60 years of harvests left.

Farmers are struggling harder than ever.

U.S. net farm income has dropped by 50% in the last four years. Farmers are increasingly reliant on much-needed, but increasingly costly taxpayer-funded crop insurance.

Food security is national security.

With no topsoil, American farmers, the economy and our food security are at risk. Billions of dollars in lost revenue, millions of lost jobs and all domestic food production are on the line.

Supply chains are at risk.

Supply chains are at risk, threatening the security of countless employees, business owners, investors & insurers across all industries that rely on agriculture.
