Soil Health Starter Kit

Do you own farmland in Indiana?

Approximately 45% of Indiana Farmland is Owned by Non-Operators. Of that rented farmland, almost half has been rented to the same tenant for more than 10 years! Even so, the vast majority of leases must be renewed annually. This insecurity is often cited as a barrier to adoption of conservation practices. 

Farmland owners are in a prime position to make adoption of soil health practices easier.
