Unique NLAE ISU Partnership to Support Farmers and Soil Conservationists to Understand Benchmarks to Measure and Monitor Carbon
A group of NLAE scientists, Ken Wacha, Dan Olk and John Prueger, led by Thanos Papanicolaou, laboratory director at the USDA ARS National Laboratory for Agriculture and the Environment, will support ISU efforts to the Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) network to better understand the impact of climate smart conservation practices on soil carbon redistribution and storage. The $2 million project is part of a four-year soil carbon partnership to expand measurement and monitoring of soil carbon on working agricultural lands. Iowa State in partnership with NLAE are one of four teams in different regions selected by the USDA NRCS to support coordination of national efforts for greenhouse gas accounting. The other regional partners are Michigan State University, American Climate Partners and the University of Texas at El Paso.
