WELCOME TO MINNESOTA
SOIL HEALTH COALITION

Soil Health has been realized in Minnesota to provide multiple benefits not only to the environment but also to production agriculture. The Minnesota Soil Health Coalition's birth is due to producers implementing Soil Health practices and understanding the importance of a producer-driven, producer-led Soil Health organization in Minnesota to provide information, support, and networking.

Our Passion

The Minnesota Soil Health Coalition is a farmer led and driven organization dedicated to provide education, farmer to farmer mentoring, networking and plain language technical information. Two key goals of the coalition is to provide farmer to farmer mentoring and soil health testing that couples; management, economic, and agronomic data to more quickly provide real world information to the producers of Minnesota. The idea being that information is power—that the faster real world information is made available, the quicker management decisions can be made in the field.

BECOME A MEMBER

In addition to being part of a community of individuals who are passionate about soil health your membership also includes some great perks!

FIND A MENTOR

Our farmer mentors are producers that have implemented soil health practices on their operations and are willing to discuss their experiences with other farmers.  Information provided by farmers to farmers is especially vital-you have planned, implemented, and witnessed the results.  You have experience trouble shooting, working with the logistics, and have first-hand knowledge of those practices.
