Free NRCS Webinar on Carbon Cycle, Soil Health, March 10Wed, 04 Mar 2015 09:41:02 CST
Find out how cover crops and proper grazing management can improve the carbon cycle and soil health.
Jay Fuhrer, nationally-known soil health expert and District Conservationist for USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service, in Bismarck, North Dakota, presents a discussion of the carbon cycle in agricultural fields, the role of a healthy soil food web and the impact that various agricultural systems have on carbon levels in soil.
This one-hour webinar spotlights a case study on a hayland farm that follows a "no exporting policy" a management technique in which hay that is grown is fed on the same field at some point in the year, covering all the acres during the winter feeding period. Uses of annual multi-species cover crops to rejuvenate an old pasture or hay field will also be discussed.
No pre-registration is necessary. Space is not limited. Please plan to join the webinar no more than 15 minutes early so that you can register and join in.
