    Positive associations of soil organic matter and crop yields across a regional network of working farms

    The amount of soil organic matter (SOM) is considered a key indicator of soil properties associated with higher fertility. We quantified the relationship between SOM and yields of corn (Zea mays L.) and silage for a dataset of 170 fields arrayed across 49 farms in a network of growers based in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
