As a STAR affiliate, Colorado utilizes the STAR field evaluation framework to assess where producers are on their soil health journey. Producers fill out a field evaluation form, choosing from 11 different cropping systems and grazing lands. They then receive a field sign with a 1 through 5 STAR rating and receive assistance from soil health professionals to identify areas for improved management to increase their soil health, document their progress, and share their successes. The Colorado Soil Health Program also provides funding to agriculture communities across the state through the Colorado STAR+ program which provides financial and technical assistance to producers as they implement new practices on one field over three years and to encourage the long-term adoption of these practices across their operation. Participants gain familiarity and expertise with new practices and an increased understanding of the environmental and economic outcomes associated with them. STAR+ also provides significant capacity support, equipment grants, training, and other support to conservation districts and eligible entities so that they can provide technical assistance to landowners where and when they need it in innovative ways. These partners provide trusted local support and knowledge to ensure producer success.
