SACRAMENTO — June 5, 2024 — CDFA's Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation (OEFI) is now accepting proposals for new conservation management practices for inclusion in its Healthy Soils Program (HSP). The HSP stems from the California Healthy Soils Initiative, a collaboration between state agencies to support the development of healthy soils in California. By providing funds to incentivize implementation of conservation management practices and on–farm demonstration projects, the HSP helps sequester carbon, reduce atmospheric greenhouse gases (GHGs), and enhance soil health.

As part of program development beginning in 2016, CDFA identified specific conservation management practices for initial funding through the HSP. In subsequent years, CDFA expanded the suite of practices supported by the HSP, identifying new practices through a public process. For example, CDFA added Whole Orchard Recycling in 2020, in which orchard trees are chipped and incorporated back into the soil. To be included in HSP and supported by incentive grants, a practice must meet two criteria: achieving net GHG reduction benefits that can be estimated through a quantification methodology, and having established implementation standards.
