TEST-Compost on New Mexico Rangelands

SARE products

Emily Cornell with Sol Ranch and Zach Withers with Polk’s Folly Farm, both in New Mexico, describe their project applying compost to their rangelands through a Western SARE Farmer/Rancher grant. They were able to increase their forage production, water infiltration, and soil microbial activity. Zach notes that they increased forage production by 78% in year. Emily says, "I can see the difference." Zach and Emily also discuss how Western SARE's support assisted them along the way.
