Introducing the Soil Health Demo Trials.

We're very pleased to share that the Soil Health Demonstration Trials are moving forward! These Trials began as a provision in the Farm Bill which a strong coalition of NGOs, farmers, businesses, and soil scientists worked to support.

Overseen by the NRCS-Conservation Innovation Grants division, up to $10 million annually will be dedicated to the Soil Health Demo Trials (from a pot of $25 million annually for “On-Farm Trials”), to incentivize and reward improved soil health!


🌾 Learn more about the trials and find out if you're eligible to apply.

🌾 Review the webinar led by NRCS-CIG, including the Q&A session (or download a hard-copy of the webinar presentation).

🌾 Familiarize yourself with the types of soil health indicators and assessments applicants will be expected to use in the NRCS Soil Health Technical Note on Recommended Soil Health Indicators and Associated Laboratory Procedures.

🌾 Thinking of applying? Read the On-Farm Trials funding announcement in detail. The deadline is July 15th.
