Climate Change and Organic Agriculture

October 6, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Understanding everything you need to know about organic  is no easy task. Oregon Tilth and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) are here to help with our 2015 Webinar Series. Join us on the first Tuesday of every month for our one hour webinar sessions so you can gain a better understanding on the rapidly changing industry.

Join this webinar to learn about practices that maximize carbon fixation and how organic agriculture can sequester carbon.

Kris will discuss the Rodale Institute’s new white paper: Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change: A Down-to-Earth Solution to Global Warming.  She will discuss the positive impacts of organically managed soils on climate change and address the most effective practices: conservation tillage, cover crops, enhanced crop rotations, residue retention and the use of compost.

Speaker:  Dr. Kris Nichols, Chief Scientist, Rodale Institute
