NM Healthy Soil Survey
This survey helps inform the proposed New Mexico Healthy Soil Act, which would establish a voluntary incentives and education program to support farmers, ranchers and other land managers in soil health stewardship.

The Act will be based on the five soil health principles and designed to help farmers and ranchers be successful. This state-level program is an opportunity to leverage federal and other conservation moneys, providing matching funds so that cost share is no longer an issue.

The Healthy Soil Initiative gives New Mexicans more control over how conservation money is spent and is geared towards our specific needs. The Soil & Water Conservation Districts and other local organizations facilitate the work with interested land managers. Incentivizing voluntary soil health stewardship will boost the economic viability of New Mexico’s working lands and lead to greater vitality of our rural communities and ecosystems.

The New Mexico Healthy Soil Act has been endorsed by bi-partisan sponsors in the NM legislature and will be introduced in early January.
