Attendees will be first to learn the initial results from the North American Project to Evaluate Soil Health Measurements, a major initiative to sample 122 long-term research sites across Canada, United States, and Mexico in order to evaluate 31 indicators of soil health. The project includes evaluating several biological measurements of soil health, such as phospholipid fatty acids and metagenomics to assess soil microbial communities, along with several indicators of the processes they influence.
