Research Project: CEAP-Grazing Lands Soil Respiration Measurements for Modeling (2016)

Location: Grassland Soil and Water Research Laboratory

Project Number: 3098-11000-001-57-I
Project Type: Interagency Reimbursable Agreement

Start Date: Oct 1, 2015
End Date: Dec 31, 2017

Objective:
Educate NRCS employees and the general public on new soil testing methods that will improve our understanding of soil management systems.

Approach:
Perform Haney Soil Heal Analysis on approximately 350 soil samples provided by NRCS CEAP-GL partners with active projects on western grazing lands. Will improve accuracy in simulation of CEAP conservation practice scenarios and a greater understanding of soil health factors and several dynamic soil properties.
