PCD Awarded Conservation Innovation Project to Support Climate-Smart Agriculture and Soil Health
Inland Northwest Farmers Leading Our United Revolution In Soil Health (FLOURISH)
Palouse Conservation District has been awarded $2,182,757 to work with crop producers of the inland Pacific Northwest (iPNW) to demonstrate farming practices that build soil health and increase the resilience of dryland cropping systems. The overall goal of this project is to support the widespread adoption of soil health management systems (SHMS)−specifically cover cropping, interseeding, and cover crop-livestock integration. This project will create a formal, farmer-led group dedicated to demonstrating SHMS that incorporate cover crops and livestock integration with cover crops on a regional scale and disseminate findings to peers, agricultural professionals, and the public.
