This project will conduct trainings on soil health and stream health for nearly 6,000 farmers, conservation professionals, and others. Pennsylvania No-Till Alliance will offer technical assistance on cover crops and no-till farming to to at least 24 farmers.. The potential for synergy between the Alliance and Stroud Water Research Center is promising. The same biological principles — nurturing the microbes and other organisms that do the real work — apply to achieving both healthy soils and healthy streams.
