Today’s Farmer featured Neal Bredehoeft, USB farmer-leader, discussing details on Secretary Vilsack’s signing of the USDA’s Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities program with Farmers for Soil Health being one of two initiatives launched.

Bredehoeft said he believes farmers will like the Farmers for Soil Health initiative because early adopters of conservation practices, like himself, can participate. There will be different levels of cost-share enrollment based on whether farmers are new to cover crops or have already established the practice.
