University Project: Regional Soil Health Assessment Project
From Jeff Layne on March 22nd, 2018
Faculty, College of Agriculture
Although Dr. Garrett Liles is involved with a soil health assessment project that is regional in scope, he is also aware of the big picture. In this presentation, he states that soil health work can be seen as efforts “to ensure that humanity persists.” Dr. Liles advocates for active programs to protect the “precious resource” of soil from the ravages of such factors as erosion, compaction, and climate change. He discusses how tools such as soil surveys and sampling lead to constructive research.
