Insights from the behavioral sciences are revolutionizing the way in which government programs are designed and delivered, and CBEAR is bringing this revolution to agri-environmental programs. A “test, learn, adapt” strategy helps programs be their best, achieve greater levels of program participation and satisfaction, and achieve improved environmental outcomes, all while reducing costs. To create evidence-based programs, CBEAR has been conducting randomized field experiments across the US. We welcome the opportunity to collaborate with private-sector or governmental partners on projects related to the following initiatives:
(1) Building the evidence base for financial vs. technical assistance;
(2) Building the evidence base for enhancing the post-contract persistence of conservation practices; and
(3) Building the evidence base for environmental and economic benefits of input efficiency.

With the support of a USDA Conservation Innovation Grant, AFT has launched online access to the methods, tools, and training resources it used in developing case studies featuring soil health successful farmers in its Quantifying the Economic and Environmental Benefits of Soil Health project.

Specifically, partners will be able to use AFT’s Retrospective Soil Health Economic Calculator (R-SHEC), an 11-tab Excel-spreadsheet tool, to evaluate the costs and benefits of soil health practices including no-till or reduced tillage, cover crops, nutrient management, and conservation crop rotation on row crop farms that have adopted any combination of practices, ideally for more than four years and within the last 10 years.

Tools & Products

Sound Agriculture develops science-backed products that help farmers improve productivity while minimizing input use. SOURCE is a foliar spray that mimics natural plant-to-microbe signals that initiate processes that fix atmospheric nitrogen and unlock phosphorus in the soil. Crops gain access to the N and P that already exists in the field, leading to improved plant and soil health, higher yields, and the opportunity to reduce the use of synthetic nitrogen fertilizer. University trials have shown the potential reduction of 50 lbs of nitrogen fertilizer per acre.
