Technical Abstract: One principle for managing cropping systems should be for soil health. Aspects of soil health include the parameters of organic C, soil physical indices including aggregation, infiltration, bulk density; and soil biological indices. These three aspects impact water use efficiency and the resilience and mitigation of climate change. These aspects will be discussed how soil health relates to WUE and climate change and what management strategies will lead to soil health.
