The idea of the carbon ranch involves the potential for removal of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere through plant photosynthesis and related land-based carbon sequestration activities. This concept is both large and largely overlooked. Techniques and benefits include increasing biodiversity, producing local food, enriching soil carbon, conserving natural habitat, lowering agricultural emissions, practicing no-till farming with perennials, restoring degraded watersheds and rangelands, and employing climate-friendly livestock practices. These strategies have been demonstrated to be both practical and profitable. Courtney White, author of Grass, Soil, Hope: A Journey Through Carbon Country, will discuss a wide variety of these practices used across the nation and will encourage dialogue among workshop participants about their experiences.
This workshop is approved for 1.5 Soil & Water Management CEUs for Certified Crop Advisors.
