NOFA Farmers Healthy Soils Survey
Thank you in advance for filling out this short survey. Your input will directly inform our advocacy on behalf of farmers & soils, and will inform our work on committees, commissions, and grant programs benefiting the farming community! In other words-- you're awesome and we appreciate you!
NOTE: This survey should take 5-6 minutes to complete. THANK YOU for your valuable time.
Email address (optional: this will add you to your NOFA state chapter's email list if you're not already subscribed)
I would like to be contacted by my local NOFA Chapter about opportunities to teach or participate in educational events, Field Days, and/or grant-funded programs around healthy soils practices.
In what state is your farm located?
Acres in cultivation
How many years have you been farming?
Poultry or Livestock
Row crops or grain
Orchard or Tree crops
My farm is:
Standard tillage (annual plowing & harrowing)
Reduced tillage (removing some tillage passes)
Minimum tillage (no more than one tillage event per year per field)
Pasture, orchard or other perennial crop that requires no tillage
What does no-till mean to you?
Which soil health tests are you doing?
Soil Organic Matter from Standard Lab Test (Extension lab, Logan Lab)
Cornell Comprehensive Assessment of Soil Health Test (CASH)
Top Soil Depth (Self-Assessment)
Days in Living Cover
Real Food Campaign Soil Test
NOFA/Mass Soil Carbon Proxy Test
NRCS or Extension Soil Health Card
Slake Test (Self-Assessment)
If you selected any of the above, please say how often (ie annually, every other year, every three years, only did it once). If you chose more than one, please name the test and say how often you conduct this test.
What are the main practices that you are using to build healthy soils on your farm?
When deciding whether to adopt a new soil health / soil management practice on your farm, which of the following types of research findings is most compelling?
Economic data that demonstrates improved farm finances as a result of the practice
'Downstream' ecological data that demonstrates improved water quality or air quality as a result of this practice
On-farm data that demonstrates that the practice results in improved physical characteristics such as improved soil structure, microbiological diversity, infiltration or drainage, or root penetration
