Three quarters of our growers report making changes to their operations over the first 3 years of the project, as a result of information they have received about soil health. In the 21st century, we expect organizations and sectors to be nimble, able to rapidly adapt to new technologies and turn on a dime like a drone. However, agriculture is NOT like a nimble drone, but rather is like a huge super tanker, taking an exceedingly long time to turn. In agriculture, there is usually only one shot per year to try something new, and many reasons why that one shot might or might not work in that year, which then requires more years of testing, tweaking, and retesting. That is why the CSSHP is a 10 year long project.
