  • Healthy soils are necessary to produce healthy food and achieve sustainable global food security. They also are a useful resource in the fight against climate change, as they absorb carbon from the air and store it. Recognizing these facts, the U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretaryhas stated that soil health is a priority and invested in programs related to the issue.

  • Conservation practices like no-till that save soil are also good for water quality, right? In many ways that’s true, but not in the case of nitrates and no-till. In fact, largely because no-till increases infiltration—a good thing for reducing erosion and runoff—nitrate losses through underground leaching are higher with no-till than with conventional tillage.
