A new signature program called Healthy Soil Healthy Environment was begun to help increase soil health and awareness of new research. Program outreach will include a new soilhealth.osu.edu website, as well as workshops and field days where research results will be presented. This new program will serve a variety of clientele, including traditional, organic, no-till, sustainable and low-input farmers; landowners; 4-H youth; adult and youth urban gardeners; Master Gardener Volunteers; crop consultants; agricultural retailers; salesmen; under-served populations; and the general public. It will facilitate collaborative research and outreach efforts focused on soil health testing across the state with the ultimate goal of better management of soil resources.
