Interpretive Summary: Soil provides ecosystem services that benefit society. An ARS scientist in Raleigh North Carolina described to a farm stakeholder audience the benefits of soil health to farmers and society. Productivity, nutrient cycling, water cycling, and biodiversity are key services that can be provided by healthy soils under forage and grasslands. Results of this effort will inform farmers and extension personnel to aid in developing more resilient agricultural systems.

Technical Abstract: No abstract, only interpretive summary.
