Soil Health Rainfall Simulator Curriculum For Youth
From Eric K Anderson on April 25th, 2016
Research suggests that younger audiences may be more receptive to soil health education than adults. Bench-top rainfall simulators have gained attention as dynamic visual tools for demonstrating the impact of various soil management practices on soil health, in particular aggregate stability, susceptibility to erosion and the tendency of water to run-off vs. infiltrate. This new curriculum resource will introduce a bench-top rainfall simulator demonstration to teach key soil health principles.
