Grower Javier Zamora purchased Triple M farm and started implementing soil health building practices in 2019. These practices included winter cover crops, conscientious tillage, residue incorporation, high crop diversity and rotation, and compost addition, plus the installation of a hedge row. The resulting soil health improvements included increases in soil organic matter and decreases in bulk density, which have positive agronomical benefits such as reducing soil erosion, improving water holding capacity, lower disease and higher yield potential.
