Economics of Soil Health: Contributions of Reduced Tillage and Cover Cropping

January 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

A series of Soil Science Society of America webinars produced in partnership with The Soil Health Institute and sponsored by The Walton Family Foundation.

Weighing the costs and benefits of soil health management practices is a primary concern for producers considering the adoption of such practices. However, the economic information needed for making data-driven, science-based decisions is difficult to find. Recognizing that cropping and operating systems, climate, and soils vary, the Soil Health Institute has done extensive research to develop partial budgets to fill the knowledge gap on the economics of soil health systems. Using data from more than 100 corn and soybean production partial budgets from across the United States, this webinar will provide an in-depth analysis of how cover cropping affects expenditures and management practices in reduced tillage systems. It will also discuss details on cover crop seed mixes, planting, and termination strategies.
