Soil Health Questionnaire: Costs and benefits for farms in New York State

Cornell University, on behalf of the New York State Soil Health Workgroup, has developed a questionnaire for farmers funded by New York State Ag & Markets. The initiative is focused on soil health, farm sustainability, environmental quality, and resilience of agriculture to extreme weather events. Completion of this questionnaire is voluntary and anonymous. The information will be used to

  • Quantify the economic and environmental benefits of improving soil health;
  • Inform the development of a “Soil Health Roadmap” to guide resources for research, demonstration and implementation of practices to improve soil health in NYS.
