Soil Health Case Studies

The following soil health case studies feature “soil health successful” row crop farmers or almond growers who have economic success stories to tell about adopting various soil health practices. AFT and partners produced these case studies using our Retrospective Soil Health Economic Calculator (R-SHEC) Tool and additional materials in our Soil Health Case Study Tool Kit. To learn how to produce your own case studies, visit our “Quantifying Economic and Environmental Benefits of Soil Health” webpage.

We have compiled and summarized the results of these case studies here: https://farmland.org/soil-health-case-studies-findings/.
