Soil Quality Network

SQN logo

Funded by the Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Professional Development Program, the Soil Quality Network is a three-year project to create a database, develop a website, and train agricultural professionals in soil quality assessment, education program development and strategies to support farmers.  

"This system will provide agricultural professionals and farmers with access to soil quality resources including: assessment tool information, models for various aspects of program development, soil quality related research, and lessons learned from programs that promote soil quality.“ 

from Wired for Soils, Dr. Dawn Ferris, Soil Science Society of America
