Through the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), we are working with partners and the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service to transform more than 2,000 acres of highly erodible croplands, overgrazed pasture, and low-quality prairie and savanna remnants to thriving and productive perennial cover.
"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.
