Soil Health Action Plan

“The Soil Health Institute (SHI), a leading resource for science-based soil health information, will unveil the national Soil Health Action Plan at 9 a.m., May 18.

“The nationwide plan evolved after four years of stakeholder input, beginning with the Soil Renaissance in 2013. Agricultural industry thought leaders, farmers, ranchers, scientists, government agency leaders, and non-governmental organizations provided input into the plan, which will be used to drive advancements in soil health.

“Speakers will include Wayne Honeycutt, President and CEO of the Soil Health Institute; Bill Buckner, President and CEO of the Samuel Roberts Noble Foundation; Keith Alverson, a 6th generation farmer who serves as a member of the Corn Board of the National Corn Growers Association; Leonard Jordan, Acting Chief of the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service; Jerry Lynch, Vice President and Chief Sustainability Officer of General Mills; and Michael Doane, Director of Working Lands, The Nature Conservancy. Bruce Knight, Principal and Founder of Strategic Conservation Solutions, will moderate the event.”
