An Assessment of Organic Farming on Soil Physical and Chemical Properties

Watch this webinar to learn about the long-term impact that organic farming practices can have on soil properties. Hear from researchers from the University of Nebraska who recently published a new article assessing the soil impacts of forty years organic farming practices. The research found that organic practices can increase water storage, and reduce the soil’s susceptibility to compaction.

This webinar was presented in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) – Science and Technology National Technology Support Centers.
