Implementation of soil-health management practices – like no-till farming and cover crops – can help increase organic matter in the soil, reduce soil compaction, and even improve nutrient storage in the soil.
NRCS and The Trust for Public Land, in conjunction with the Maine Mountain Collaborative, have announced that $4.6 million in federal funds will be directed toward a project to help improve inadequate fish and wildlife habitat in Maine’s western mountains.
For more than 80 years the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and its predecessor the Soil Conservation Service, have been helping to address natural resource concerns.
An NRCS project that restored an aquatic organism passage in southern Maine may have prevented an environmental disaster on one of the area’s most important salmon-spawning streams.
As part of the 2015 “International Year of the Soils” initiative, NRCS hosted a day-long seminar on the importance of soil health to Maine agriculture, during Maine Farm Days in Kennebec County.
