By SHP Staff on Thursday, 12 March, 2020

The Soil Health Partnership is pleased to announce the launch of The People of Soil Health Podcast on April 7. The People of Soil Health Podcast will provide a direct connection into the network of soil health professionals who are focused on the on-farm economic and environmental benefits of soil health.

SHP Senior Director John Mesko will serve as the host and will interview the best in the agricultural and environmental industries to discuss soil health practices and management systems, issues facing farmers, and insights from soil data sets. 

The podcast will discuss the following questions and many more:

  • What is soil health? 
  • What are the benefits of cover crops and conservation tillage? 
  • How can my farm be more sustainable? 
  • Why is healthy soil important?
  • What’s the best way to increase organic matter in a corn field? 

Tune in to listen to experts answer these questions, share their experiences, and more!

During the first episode of The People of Soil Health, Senior Director John Mesko will be visiting with SHP Lead Scientist Dr. Maria Bowman to review SHP’s first business case about an Indiana farmer and the economic benefits of his wheat cover crop management practices. As the science of soil health continues to evolve, Maria has become a recognized leader in collecting and analyzing on-farm data to help farmers improve their decision making.

“At our core, SHP believes in the power of partnerships. The people collaborating to advance the complex issues of soil health are remarkable, and I can’t wait to bring you into these conversations,” commented John.
