In this webinar, Dr. Cristine Morgan, chief scientific officer for Soil Health Institute, shares the work being conducted at the Institute. Cristine provides insight into collecting soil health data over very large land areas (regional, multi-state) and how that information is used to assess soil health as well as create recommendations. She also gives update into the work occurring at SHI to make soil health more accessible, like testing a simple phone app to measure aggregate stability.
