Healthy Soils for a Sustainable Future: Soil Health and Greenhouse Gases

Event date: 
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
Event venue: 
Virtual Webinar
Event description: 

Soils are fundamental to agriculture and food security. With limited agricultural land and the complications posed by climate change, it is critical to maintain and strive to improve working soils to ensure a resilient future. Improved soil carbon and nitrogen management can increase a farm’s soil health, profits, and adaptability to extreme weather. It can also reduce a farm’s carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions. Reducing greenhouse gas emissions is a way to mitigate the impacts of climate change.

This webinar is intended for technicians and educators who are looking to assist landowners in navigating options for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from soil through soil carbon and nitrogen management. Other social, environmental, or economic considerations will also be addressed in this presentation.

This webinar is presented by the USDA Northeast Climate Hub. Contact Jennifer Ryan, Science & Technology Training Library content manager, for more information about this webinar.
