Recently, the National Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) put forward a proposal for a program to compensate farmers for use of organics to improve soil health. Included in this proposal were composts, biosolids composts included, and biochar. The proposal as written, specifically called out non composted biosolids as not suitable. Members of the W 4170 Committee wrote a response to the proposed program. Our response has been received; comments noted. We have been asked to comment on the new version of the proposal which will be available for comment this spring. We are working on this!
