The National Corn Growers Association welcomes Anne Dietz, who joins the St. Louis office as program coordinator for the Soil Health Partnership (SHP). Dietz brings an excellent combination of program management skills and extensive knowledge of many aspects of agriculture. In this new position, she will provide support to share information and research across the full network of SHP partner organizations.


“Anne is an excellent addition to our team, and we are excited to have her unique skillset to help our already thriving program continue to grow,” said NCGA Director of Soil Health and Sustainability Dr. Nick Goeser.  “She has repeatedly demonstrated the ability to improve both the processes and efficiencies of the departments in which she has worked. We look forward to utilizing this skillset to help grow this innovative program.”

SHP brings together diverse partner organizations including commodity groups, federal agencies, universities and environmental groups to work toward the common goal of improving soil health. Over a period of at least 10 years, the SHP will identify, test and measure farm management practices that improve soil health and benefit farmers. An initiative of the National Corn Growers Association, SHP provides the spark for greater understanding and implementation of agricultural best practices to protect resources for future generations.
