Soil Health

Soil is a living and life-giving substance, without which we would perish.  As world population and food production demands rise, keeping our soil healthy and productive is of paramount importance. So much so that we believe improving the health of our Nation’s soil is one of the most important conservation endeavors of our time.  

A growing number of America’s farmers are using soil health management systems to improve the health and function of their soil.  The preceding statements are from NRCS but are supported by the New Mexico Association of Conservation Districts. 

House Bill 204 addressing soil health in New Mexico was introduced in the 54th Legislature.  It did not make it into law, but the bill is attached below for your information.
