This evaluation tool will help you understand your strengths and weaknesses as a soil health manager. Questions are separated into 14 categories. Each category will be scored separately, and a total weighted score will also be calculated. The content of this tool is heavily based on the publication, "Soil Health in field and forage crop production," by Sjoerd Duiker, Joel C. Myers, and Lisa C. Blazure. The project team also includes Nevin Dawson and Travis Martin.
