Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne discuss biomass data and trends in fields with long-term cover crop use vs no cover.
Cover crops don’t just cover the soil above ground. They literally have the ability to change the life below it! In this video, Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne review soil biomass numbers from a few selected fields across the state of South Carolina. These fields have recently implemented no-till and covers and are…
Dr. Buz Kloot and Dr. Gabe Kenne discuss the importance of testing soils at the right time to get the most accurate, consistent readings.
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…
Two years ago, farmer John Brabham signed up for our ‘Cover 5’ series, a project where we take five acres of under-performing land and start introducing cover crops. When we met John, his five acres were largely defined by sandy soils, weeds and erosion. Through the use of diverse covers, in a short time, the…
We sit down with regenerative farmers Barry and Eli Little out of Castlewood, South Dakota to discus soil health, cover crops, livestock and economics.
