The Soil Health Paradigm: A Holistic Approach to Managing Manure in Agroecosystems

Soil Health is the capacity of a specific kind of soil to function, within natural or managed ecosystem boundaries, to sustain plant and animal productivity, maintain or enhance water and air quality, and support human health and habitation”. The soil health paradigm provides a holistic framework for managing manure which accounts for the soil biology. The soil biota greatly impacts soil function and predominately regulates nutrient loss pathways. The typical way of managing manure is crop removal rate or agronomic rate. These two predominately used methods rarely account for the function of the soil biology. An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted.
