Eight compelling and easy-to-read two-page soil health economic case studies were developed by American Farmland Trust (AFT) through a 2018 USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG). AFT's project is called, “Accelerating Soil Health Adoption by Quantifying Economic and Environmental Outcomes & Overcoming Barriers on Rented Lands.” The case studies feature almond farmers in California, corn-soybean farmers in Illinois and Ohio, and diversified crop farmers in New York.
