Soil Health Institute to Award Grants for Literature Reviews

The Soil Health Institute is accepting applications until June 23, 2017, for grants supporting compilations and reviews of soil health-related scientific literature.

The Soil Health Institute’s on-line library and search engine for soil health-related information, the Soil Health Research Landscape tool, is a living compilation of published literature and other sources of information valuable to the soil health community. It is available on this website without fee to researchers, practitioners, consultants, producers, and others in the public and private sectors.

On May 23, 2017, the SHI released a Call for Applications to fund up to five grants at a maximum of $8,000 each to support preparation of literature searches and summaries of soil health and its relationship to land management practices, ecosystem processes and services including agricultural production, human health, associated economic costs and benefits, and other relevant topics. Products expected from successful grantees include a list of publications and other sources (reliable reports, websites, databases, etc.) on the chosen topic; a brief summary of each source reviewed; and a review paper synthesizing this information. References, summaries, and the review paper will be deposited in the Landscape tool on-line library for free public access.
