The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service National Soil Health and Sustainability Team Agronomist Ray Archuleta demonstrate the usually unseen and misunderstood differences between healthy soil and how soils can become unhealthy, during the 2013 Agricultural Outlook Forum held at the Crystal Gateway Marriott Hotel in Arlington, VA on Friday, Feb. 22, 2013. Mr Archuleta is a champion for understanding soil health as the foundation for farming sustainably in the 21st century: reducing chemical inputs; creating sustainable farming; improving water holding capacity; improving the farmer’s bottom line; and feeding an increasing global population. The breakout session on Reducing Risks by Improving Soil Health examined the indicators of soil health, to reduce chemical inputs and apply the right techniques for sustainable production and other benefits. Soil health is defined as the capacity of the soil to function as a living ecosystem that sustains plant, animal, and human health with limited human intervention. USDA photo by Lance Cheung.
