Emphasis is placed on understanding the role of healthy soil in creating resiliency to drought and wildfire with other benefits that result when soil health is a consideration. Practices will vary from field to field and region to region based on the conservation goals of the landowner, and benefits will not normally be immediate. In the long term, improving soil health will have multiple layers of benefits including to the bottom line.
