Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton

Overview

The Healthy Soils for Sustainable Cotton project aims to increase the adoption of soil health management systems among cotton producers while documenting environmental and economic benefits. The project provides farmer-focused education and training events delivered by Soil Health Institute scientists, partnering with local soil health technical specialists and farmer mentors who have implemented successful soil health management systems.

The five soil health management principles of reducing disturbance, armoring the soil, keeping living roots in soil, increasing plant diversity, and incorporating livestock were discussed.
