Research Project: Agricultural Greenhouse Warming Potential and Carbon Sequestration Model Correction: Considering Organic and Long Term Rotational Systems

Location: Sustainable Agricultural Systems Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-21660-004-17
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2012
End Date: Jun 30, 2015

Objective:
Expand on our capacity to identify cropping system practices that reduce green house gas emissions, sequester soil carbon and enhance desirable ecosystem services provided by sustainable cropping systems.

Approach:
Using FSP and on-farm sites to conduct experiments that target the inherent differences among farming systems that vary in the linkage between carbon and nitrogen cycling in regards to greenhouse gas emissions and carbon sequestration potential.
