Compost application is the most commonly-funded practice within CDFA's Healthy Soils Incentives Program: during the 2020 solicitation, over 80% of the 300+ awardees included compost application in their project! For many growers and ranchers, producing compost on-site offers multiple benefits, including a convenient method for managing crop residues or manures; improving nutrient cycling on your property; and the ability to create a tailor-made finished product. If you are wondering how to get started composting or improve your existing compost system while meeting Healthy Soils Program requirements, this webinar is for you!
What if my HSP award doesn't include application of compost produced on-farm? No problem! If you're interested in using your funding to create and apply compost, we'll also discuss options for modifying your existing grant agreement to include this practice.
Although the content of this webinar is tailored for Healthy Soils Program awardees, registration is open to all.
All registrants for this webinar will also receive a link to the recording after the live presentation has occurred.
