"Show Me the Data! Empowering Conservation Champions with Innovative, Real-time Soil Metrics" is a three-year, on-farm demonstration integrating remote sensing and soil sensors with the collection of soil health metrics. This information will aid farmers in making in-season management decisions based on real-time soil moisture and temperature data.
Sand County Foundation is supporting the first WPDES permit compliance effort engaging agriculture in the Milwaukee River Basin with a Performance-Based Conservation approach to adaptive management.
