What impact do specific farming practices have on soil quality?
Are we improving soil quality on our farms and ranches?
What is the difference in soil quality on native pasture and crop ground?
These are a few of the questions that DeAnn Presley and Lyle Frees are attempting to answer with the soil quality study they began last November. Presley is an assistant professor of environmental soil science at Kansas State University and Frees is a USDA-NRCS water quality specialist.
