41: Studying Soil Health
Dr. Anna Cates, the State Soil Health Specialist for the Minnesota Office for Soil Health (MOSH), discusses the roles and interplay of both scientific research and anecdotes in soil health education and implementation with host Jared Luhman. In her opinion, both are quite valuable in making the case for using soil health techniques on the farm.
In this episode, Dr. Cates shares the research she is doing with MOSH in several farmer’s fields. Tracking pairs of neighboring conventional and “soil health fields,” MOSH is looking at soil aggregates before and after rainfall. Listen into her conversation with Jared for an inside look at the soil health research happening here in Minnesota!
