Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne discuss biomass data and trends in fields with long-term cover crop use vs no cover.
Much like the Haney Test, the P.L.F.A. (Phospholipid Fatty Acid Analysis) isn’t always fully understood. What does the analysis have to tell us about our soils and why is it useful? In this Video, Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne break it all down.
In this final video in our series unpacking the Haney Test (an assessment of soil nutrient availability), Dr. Buz Kloot explains what the final component, the ‘H3A’ Test, is and why it’s relevant to farmers and their soils.
In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot unpacks the second part of the Haney Test dealing with organic matter.
In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot unpacks the first part of the haney test dealing with CO2C and soil respiration.
Throughout the duration of the Cover5 project there has been a lot of talk about ‘soil biology’. While many of our previous videos have shown obvious visual changes in soils over time through regenerative management practices, what other ways are there to measure and track the biological improvement of our soils? In this next series…
We sit down with regenerative farmers Barry and Eli Little out of Castlewood, South Dakota to discus soil health, cover crops, livestock and economics.
The questions for farmers around the country is getting louder than ever: Conventional or Regenerative? Hear Will Metts of Metts Organix take on why he chose regenerative for the health of the land, himself and his family.
In this podcast, we sit down with soil scientist Dr. Ray Weil. Dr. Weil is a leader in researching and promoting the adoption of more sustainable agricultural systems in both industrial and developing countries. His research focuses on soil organic matter management for enhanced soil ecosystem functions and nutrient cycling for water quality and agricultural…
Using cover crops has a bevy of benefits. Among other things, covers help increase infiltration, reduce erosion, improve soil resilience and structure and promote organic matter. But what do first time cover croppers need to know to reap the most benefits early on? Hear Will Metts of Metts Organix’s take from his own experience.
