Conserve • Preserve • Develop Soil Health
The South Dakota Soil Health Coalition (SDSHC) is a producer led, nonprofit, membership organization that was created in the spring of 2015. The Coalition is governed by a nine-member board of farmers and ranchers from across the state and includes several staff members. Staff and board members strive to carry out the Coalition’s mission to “Promote Improved Soil Health” through education and research.
The SDSHC partners with organizations such as the South Dakota USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, South Dakota Association of Conservation Districts, South Dakota No-Till Association, South Dakota Grassland Coalition, South Dakota State University Extension, South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources, South Dakota Department of Agriculture, USDA Agricultural Research Service, local Conservation Districts and many others in order to achieve our mission.
These partnerships are extremely important as they allow the Coalition to distribute the latest and most accurate technical information regarding soil health and the efforts being made by organizations across the state to improve it. The Coalition’s most important partnership however is with farmers, ranchers and others who live and work across the state of South Dakota. This continued partnership will allow for the protection and enhancement of this resource for many generations to come.
