Managing for Soil Health: Maximize Biodiversity
Healthy systems are diverse systems.
Increasing biodiversity across your operation can break disease cycles, stimulate plant growth, and provide habitat for pollinators and valuable organisms – like earthworms and microbes – living in your soil.
Visit our new farmers.gov/soilhealth page for additional resources on managing for soil health across your working land, and give us feedback at the bottom of the page.
Whether you manage 1 acre or 10,000, we’re here to help you build healthier soils and strengthen your operation.
