South Dakota Profiles In Soil Health

Video Locations

The SD Profiles In Soil Health videos were created to promote the use and adoption of soil health practices throughout the state of South Dakota. Their creation was organized by the SD Soil Health Coalition through a grant with USDA-NRCS SD and features farmers and ranchers sharing their firsthand experiences with adopting and utilizing these practices on their operations.
