Turning Soils into Sponges: How Farmers Can Fight Floods and Droughts

This report examines the potential of a set of farming practices known for their ability to build rich, porous, sponge-like soils. The analysis shows that these well-known practices could make a substantial difference if adopted widely across the Midwest. But taking on new practices is not easy for many farmers, and federal farm policies provide little support to ease the transition. The report identifies key federal policies and programs that could be implemented or changed to bring about more resilient farming systems.
