[Video] Getting to the Root of Soil Health: Why a Deeper Dig is Essential

Strip-tillers cite a systematic approach as a key to successful adoption of the practice. But the combination of equipment, nutrient management and berm-building are only pieces of a broader soil health puzzle — whether strip-tillers realize it or not.

According to Agricultural Engineer Odette Ménard, soil should be the first consideration farmers take into account when making a systemic transition on their operation.

This is especially true with conservation tillage systems to gain a deeper understanding of the influential decisions — positive and negative — farmers can make that enhance or degrade soil health.

Ménard details the critical correlation soil health improvement has on water infiltration, earthworm activity and what the last year taught farmers about a reinvestment in a ground-up approach to biological diversity.
