Description

California’s Healthy Soils Action Plan is an interagency plan resulting from the Healthy Soils Initiative lead by the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA). The Plan provides guiding principles and actions to reach the goals outlined by the interagency working group. Healthy agricultural soils have many adaptive benefits aside from increasing plant health and yields. Healthy soils increase water filtration and retention and reduce sediment erosion and dust - assisting in flood management and air and water quality control.
