EcoGEM Soil Enhancer not only provides direct returns back to the farm in terms of increased soil health, better water management, and carbon capture/greenhouse gas mitigation – but can also qualify to put dollars back in the pockets of American farmers as a reimbursable Conservation Standard Practice (CSP) from the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS).
As part of the Farm Bill, the NRCS provides financial and technical services to American farmers through an established list of best management practices or Conservation Practice Standards (CPS). EcoGEM Soil enhancer is proud to be recognized under the Amending Soil Properties with Gypsum Products (Ac is 333) Conservation Practice Standard and is directly REIMBURSABLE in many states. In addition, EcoGEM Soil Enhancer is also a best practice in CPS Salinic and Salty Soil Management (Ac is CPS-610-1), although no reimbursement money is currently being offered in this practice.
