Soil Health and Stream Health for Red and White Clay Creeks

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project engages two farmers to implement more than 1,000 acres of cover crops, conduct trials of eight or more innovative methods to advance cover crop and no-till techniques, and create infrastructure that lessens soil compaction and nutrient losses from fields. More than 20 acres of forested buffers will be restored in these watersheds.
