This project will support Stroud Water Research Center’s continuing efforts on soil health, particularly for outreach and education on cover crops and no-till farming, with modest funds for implementing these practices. It will also install conservation practices on farms to improve watershed health. It will provide outreach, technical assistance, and financial assistance to farmers who agree to install forested buffers as an integral part of wider work to install conservation practices.
