Whether they're experiencing drought or heavy rains, farmers and graziers know that healthy soils retain water better than depleted soils. Soil aggregation creates porous space, which ensures that rainfall stays in the soil instead of running off into waterways. In this video, Lisa Blazure of the Pennsylvania Soil Health Coalition and NCAT Sustainable Agriculture Specialist Lee Rinehart discuss soil water conditions and demonstrate how to assess infiltration rates at the Columbia and Luzerne County Conservation Districts Soil Health Field Day. The field day was held at Chapin Farms, a no-till grain farm in Nescopeck, Pennsylvania, in August 2022.
