49 Carbon, Nitrogen, Energy and Water Footprints In Agriculture Production: Changing Practices and Opportunities

Oral Session
Agriculture and Natural Resources Science for Climate Variability and Change: Transformational Advancements in Research, Education and Extension This session focuses on the role of research, education and extension in reducing carbon, nitrogen and water footprints through improved fertilizer, fuel, and pesticide use efficiency, increased sequestration of soil carbon, and reduced greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
