PARM Webinar: Re-Carbonizing Row Crop Farms
July 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Precipitation event intensity, timing and location variability continue to increase. Join Justin Mount to improve your understanding of why annual row crop farmers’ soil resource resiliency can be determined by modeling cropping systems and observing the soil metric, Soil Condition Index (SCI). This webinar will briefly discuss observed and predicted rainfall variations across the country, define the functions of healthy soils, explain what SCI is and why it is a foundational soil resource metric for farmers. Justin will also explain how cropping systems can be modeled using the Integrated Erosion Tool (IET) and actions farmers can avoid or implement to increase financial resiliency.
1.5 free CCA CEUs are available for watching the webinar, one for soil and water management and 0.5 for nutrient management.
