Conservation Training

Sequestering Carbon, Reducing Greenhouse Gases, and Building Climate Resilience through Organic Soil Health Practices

September 11, 2023

12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Location: Online

This training will review the latest research findings on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) mitigation and climate resilience potential of organic systems, and will provide practical tips on how organic producers and conservation professionals can work together toward the goal of climate-neutral farming.

Research has shown that organic farming systems accrue more stable soil organic carbon (SOC), maintain higher overall resilience to weather extremes, and sometimes reduce direct agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions including methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O). All farmers face some challenges related to nutrient and livestock management that can lead to large GHG emissions, yet there is growing evidence that advanced nutrient management and adaptive grazing systems can effectively curb these emissions. Today’s webinar will review the latest research findings on GHG mitigation and climate resilience potential of organic systems, and will provide practical tips on how organic producers and conservation professionals can work together toward the goal of climate-neutral farming.
