Michigan Soil Health Progress Report


October 12, 2021 - Author: Paul Gross, <>, <> and <>,

The Michigan Soil Health Progress Report was developed to assist farmers, agribusinesses, and agency professionals to assess the health of the soil using biological and physical indicators in the field. The progress report is most effective when filled out by the same person over time, according to the suggested assessment timing. It provides the farmer with a qualitative assessment of the soil. The evaluation scores do not represent absolute measures or values, and the progress report does not negate the importance of an analysis at a certified laboratory. Using this progress report and recording values can serve as a guide to evaluate soil health practices implemented over time.
