The OSU Soil Health Lab is dedicated to improving soil health assessments and making them applicable to land managers in Oregon. Check out some of our results and presentations.
The SHL is working on a soil health database as part of an NRCS project to develop appropriate scoring and binning parameters for Oregon soils.
Soil health assessments can be used to investigate which parameters are associated with soils that suppress disease.
Soil health assessments can be used to confirm that soils with better soil health scores are frequently more productive.
