Soil health is critically linked to issues such as nutrient losses to surface water, climate change, erosion, and ultimately farm profitability. Moreover, the benefits of healthy soil are key in mitigating extreme wet and drought events. Activities and resources associated with this priority issue support all aspects of soil health that lead to the concurrent achievement of agricultural productivity and water quality goals.
