The Importance of Soil Health
Soil Health is not something the Daviess County SWCD takes lightly. Simply, we believe that maintaining soil health - whether it's in the acres of farmland across our county, or in the backyards and parks in our communities - is essential to protecting our natural resources. The results of good soil and water stewardship are critical not only for today, but for generations to come! To learn more about the importance of soil health, see the series of short videos on You Tube.
The following video was taken SE of Princeton Indiana on June 23, 2017, following a 4-inch rainfall. This short video is a 'clear' example of the importance of soil health, no-till and cover crops!
