What better place to prepare for improving soil health in 2020 and beyond than the U.S. state that produces more than 400 agricultural commodities? California leads the United States in cash farm receipts, accounting for more than 13 percent of the nation’s total agricultural value. More than a third of the country’s vegetables and two-thirds of the country’s fruits and nuts are grown here. It’s only natural that SOIL HEALTH: A Global Imperative happens right here in the state capital.
