Re-Carbonizing Row Crop Ag Lands: Evidence-based management strategies to increase soil carbon and promote financial resilience for farmers is presented by the USDA NRCS Soil Health Division. Join Justin Mount for this one-hour free webinar to improve your understanding of why annual row crop farmer soil resource resiliency can be somewhat determined by modeling their cropping system and observing the foundational soil metric Soil Condition Index (SCI). This webinar will briefly discuss observed and predicted rainfall variations across the country, define the functions of a healthy soil, explain what Soil Condition Index (SCI) is and why SCI is a foundational soil resource metric for annual row crop farmers, plus explain how a cropping system can be model using the Integrated Erosion Tool (IET) to include IET outputs plus actions farmers can avoid or implement in order to increase financial resiliency.
