WEBINAR: Organic Practices for Climate Mitigation- Adaptation- and Carbon Sequestration
Date: March 20, 2019
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Location: online webinar
In this webinar, we will discuss the capacity of sustainable organic systems and practices to sequester soil carbon, minimize nitrous oxide and methane emissions during crop and livestock production, and enhance agricultural resilience to weather extremes. The presentation will include practical guidelines for optimizing the organic farm’s “carbon footprint” and adaptability to climate disruptions already underway.
The Organic Farming Research Foundation and eOrganic is hosting a series of 9 webinars focused on the topics covered in their new Soil Health and Organic Farming educational guides: building organic matter, weed management, conservation tillage, cover crops, plant breeding and variety selection, water management and quality, nutrient management, and more!
This series is recommended for farmers, extension agents, educators, agricultural professionals, and others interested in building soil health.
Mark Schonbeck and Diana Jerkins of the Organic Farming Research Foundation will review the most recent research on soil health practices and explore how organic growers can build healthy soils on their operations. The webinars will provide practical guidelines for growers, in-depth analysis of research outcomes, and an opportunity to get your questions answered.
