Soil building practices such as crop rotations, cover crops, and organic fertilizers are central to organic practices. These practices replenish soil organic matter, feed soil life, reduce erosion, improve soil structure, and enhance nutrient cycling and water retention. This session will present scientific research examining the benefits of organic farming practices to soil. It is the third in a four-part series exploring the environmental benefits of organic agriculture.
