The beautiful places and smiling faces across the great state of South Dakota gave us so much in 2016. From the bottom of our hearts, we’d like to thank every single individual that dedicated time, no matter how small, to assist us in our journey! Please help us in our campaign to make South Dakota soils as great as the people who enjoy them by sharing our vision with others! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Al Miron, from Minnehaha County, South Dakota, discusses how a problem with residue in the short-term may be necessary for long-term soil health (one where residue and soil microbes work with your crops, not against them)!
South Dakota farmer Ralph Holzwarth discusses the issue with over-valuing a crop’s performance during the growing season and why building your organic matter through residue is far more important!
Dwayne Beck of Dakota Lakes Research Farm addresses the two opposing views of residue – one as a “friend”, the other as an “enemy” – and shines a light on why residue can be a great resource.
This is our exclusive introductory video highlighting our mission, our goals and our methodology for enhancing sustainable farming practices all across South Dakota!
