Extremes of Moisture: Potential for soil and crop management practices to rapidly increase soil organic matter on eroded land in Manitoba

Crop Types
  • Whole Farm
Collaborating Locations


This research project will examine the ability of soil management practices to increase SOM on eroded land, to rebuild its long-term productivity and profitability.

This project is a sub-project of a multi-collaborator project on the Extremes of Moisture.

  1. Assess management practices for their effectiveness to rapidly build and protect soil organic matter on eroded land in Manitoba
  2. More uniform and stable soil moisture levels and crop yields by increasing SOM in areas where it is depressed through soil erosion
  3. Greater crop productivity and profitability.
