With NCAT, use research findings to create a publication to provide practical, grower-friendly information about best management practices to reduce GHG emissions on farms, and outline economic benefits, including using these practices to market their products as 'C-friendly' to consumers.
NCAT and ARS will build on CSWA's Vineyard Managment Practices and Carbon Footprints' pamphlet by including new findings, life cycle analysis and case studies, and extend it via many venues.
