C-FARE Climate Smart Agriculture on Friday, Feb. 16 at 12-1:00 p.m. EST
The U.S. Department of Agriculture is investing over $3.1 billion in 141 selected projects under the Partnerships for Climate-Smart Commodities. Commodities include crops, animal agriculture, and forest products. These projects will reach 60,000 farms covering 25 million acres of working land. Over the life of the projects 60 million metric tons of carbon will be sequestered. Please join the February C-FARE webinar about climate smart agriculture. We will hear from the director of one funded Center at Virginia Tech, The Alliance to Advance Climate-Smart Agriculture, as well as three researchers implementing climate smart agriculture in animal operations, realize soil improvements, and increase sustainability and farm viability through changes in production practices.
