CCSI-HAT Soil Health Podcast

Monthly podcast dedicated to soil health practices and systems.


How Soils Behave in a Long-term Soil Health System


Mike Werling farms in the Western Lake Erie Basin watershed - water quality and soil health are always on his mind. He and Indiana USDA-NRCS State Soil Health Specialist Stephanie McLain talk about how Mike's cropping system have changed the way his Pewamo clay soils behave.  

The increased water infiltration of Mike's soils means he has less runoff - critical for the Lake Erie basin. It also means he has little (if any) wind-blown soil losses.  

Enjoy the discussion about snirt (snow + dirt), the depth of root and earthworm channels in Mike's soil.  And the importance of earthworm castings - worm poo.
