Technical Abstract: Soil is a dynamic, living, non-renewable resource. Soil health is the capacity of a soil to sustain plant and animal productivity and maintain or enhance water and air quality. Soil quality and health change over time due to natural events or human impacts such as management and land-use decisions. Sustainable practices will result only when the multiple functions of soil are included in decisions.
