Detailed Information About a Successful Conservation Research Project

Conservation Farming in the United States B Methods and Accomplishments of the STEEP Program explains the success of the multi-disciplinary STEEP (Solutions To Economic and Environmental and Economic Problems) conservation research and educational program, currently in its third decade, which focuses on the Pacific Northwest. Topics addressed integrated pest management, systems and equipment for conservation farming, and conservation farming technology transfer to producers.

Features

  • Details importance of the STEEP model, including its history and development
  • Offers substantive findings of benefit to all involved in the study and management of soil erosion and conservation
  • Illustrates the potential for STEEP to serve as a global model for conservation farming
