Soil Health Payback – Minimizing Risks and Reaping Rewards (December 2018)



Arcadia, Indiana farmer Rodney Rulon and his cousins base cropping systems changes for their 6000-acre farm on data-driven decisions. They have found that more often than not, the best economic decision and the best conservation decision go hand in hand. Rulon and Indiana USDA-NRCS State Conservationist Jerry Raynor discuss changes in organic matter, and how programs like those offered through NRCS can provide assistance to get started.
