Bruce Soil & Crop and Saugeen Conservation have teamed up on a research project investigating the relationship between soil OM and water infiltration rates in Bruce County Soils and we're looking for 20 participants.

We will be doing a soil test and water infiltration test on each participant's field over the months of April and May.


To enroll: Email your lot, concession number and a copy of your farmland health check up to OR fill out the enrollment form here! (it's mobile-friendly & you don't need to check your records to fill it out)

Once we've collected all the data and analyzed it, we will send back information about the county averages, along with your personal data so that you can compare.

At no time will your personal information be made public or shared with anyone other than the field and lab technicians involved in the project.

Should funding be approved, this project may include a full soil health test as well.

We're looking for 20 participants in total this year, so please share widely!
