Sustainable grazing and agricultural land management practices emphasizing soil building, water conservation, and long range planning for productivity and health.

Sustainable agriculture benefits the land and soil – and it also materially and financially benefits the farmer. In this course, you’ll learn principles and practices that can be used to conserve water, regenerate degraded soils rapidly, and incorporate the use of grazing animals beneficially.

Benefits include:
Improving soil health and biodiversity of rangelands and pastures. Increasing grazing and wildlife capacity.  Increasing annual profits and enhancing livelihoods. Optimally using rainfall and conserving water.  Growing healthier crops and achieving higher yields. Reversing desertification in brittle environments. Breaking the cycle of food and water insecurity. Enhancing family relationships.
