Carbon is at the crux of a highly functioning no-till system, but are you fully maximizing your farm’s ability to produce carbon and realize its benefit to your soils? Don Reicosky, retired soil scientist for the USDA-ARS in Morris, Minn., will outline the connection between conservation agriculture and soil health principles that are elevating the importance of carbon management.
Reicosky will discuss the differences in various cover crop characteristics as they affect biodiversity and relate to carbon production in soils, including carbon-to-nitrogen ratios, rooting characteristics and nutrient cycling. He’ll cover the role that living or dormant covers or dead biomass play as an energy source for soil biology
