Organic Amendment trials

Compost applications have been shown to have positive impacts on nutrient and water retention by increasing organic material in the soil. We are working with local producers to both support on-site and regional composting facilities and to trial outcomes for compost additions to active rangelands. 

We have a grant to support compost education in Taos – find out more here!

We are also researching biochar as a way of coupling woody waste material with on-site soil benefits. Check our events calendar for upcoming workshops on biochar.

Please contact us if you are interested in participating in research or demonstrations on your land!
