Soil Health and Fertility
Healthy, fertile soils grow healthy, resilient soybeans and other crops. Agronomic practices like tillage system, cover crops and fertilizer applications impact soil health. Research funded by the soy checkoff provides farmers with knowledge, data and strategies to understand and improve soil and plant health to produce more sustainable soybeans. Many studies, resources and tools from the checkoff help farmers manage soil fertility for soybean production and their entire crop system.
Research and experience show that nutrient availability and soil fertility support soybean plant health and strong yields. Check out what farmers, researchers and industry stakeholders have to say about managing nutrients and soil health. Join the conversation on Twitter, Facebook or YouTube.
