What is the PPP?

The PPP is a set of tools that can help graziers make informed decisions on pasture management and improvement. Developed with support from a SARE grant, it is modeled after and complements the NRCS Soil Health Bucket. The PPP provides additional information on many above-ground factors that influence pasture productivity. The PPP is mobile, user-friendly, and provides quantifiable measures to use in decision-making.

How can the PPP help me?

  • Make fact-based decisions about pasture management.
  • Provide a comprehensive toolkit for pasture assessment.
  • Translate soil health changes into forage productivity benefits.
  • Improve animal productivity to strengthen grazier profitability.
  • Promote grass-based systems that safeguard natural resources.

Two free pails will be distributed by drawing.
