Water is often and increasingly a limiting factor in Colorado Agriculture, but soil health practices can help. Soil health and regenerative agriculture are popular concepts and not without reason. By implementing soil health practices, agricultural producers increase the microbial matter in their soil, increase productivity and nutrient density, and increase the soil's water-holding capacity.
Join us on December 1 at 1 p.m. for a webinar looking at the connection between soil health and water. We'll hear about the Colorado Department of Agriculture's STAR (Saving Tomorrow's Agricultural Resources) and STAR Plus programs and the resources they offer, research available and what we have yet to learn in Colorado about connections between soil health and water quality and quantity. We'll also hear about the on-farm implementation of soil health practices, and the positive outcomes seen when tying soil health, watershed health, and ag production together.
