Impact Indiana: Nutrient Management and Soil Health Strategy

The Indiana Nutrient Management and Soil Health (NMSH) strategy was created to improve education and awareness of best management practices. Because farmers are in the best position to determine the practices that are most productive on their own farms to achieve reductions in nutrient loss, the NMSH strategy will increase on-farm awareness, which will lead to improved nutrient management, soil health and, ultimately, Indiana’s water quality.

This comprehensive strategy will stretch across multiple years with three main goals:

  • Increase awareness among farmers that nutrient loss from soil to water is an issue and can be managed at the farm level
  • Empower farmers to review and adopt new best management practices
  • Keep best management practices in the hands of farmers

Representing key organizations in the private and public sectors, this collaborative effort showcases the desire of farmers to address concerns in a way that make sense and positions Indiana as a leader in resource management.

Soil Health Partnership

The Soil Health Partnership, an NCGA initiative, is a farmer-led project with an ultimate goal of measuring and communicating the economic and environmental benefits of innovative soil management strategies.

This is completed by:

  1. Recruiting a network of demonstration farms to showcase these management practices — approximately 20 farms in Indiana participate
  2. Establish research protocols to measure soil health and water quality improvements
  3. Publish findings and recommendations — to highlight benefits of these practices to a farmer’s operation 
  4. Support networking and technical assistance to help growers make the best management decisions for their operation — both economically and environmentally
