Description:
This report form allows growers in the CSSHP to see how they compare with one of 2 peer groups (Tilled-Fields Group or Zero Tillage Group) on 12 Haney and PLFA soil health indicators. The report also shows CSSHP growers how their days of living cover, organic matter inputs and tillage intensity scores compare with their peers. The last 3 pages examines the range of soil health scores for the entire group of 96 samples for effects of organic/conventional growing methods, tillage intensity, soil texture, water availability, pH and phosphorus.
