232 Conservation Practices to Mitigate the Effects of Climate Change: I

Oral Session
S06 Soil & Water Management & Conservation

Conservation cropping practices protect soil and water resources and directly impact carbon cycling. The impact of conservation practices on global climate change is an emerging issue affecting agricultural farm policy in the US and other countries. Soil scientist have an opportunity to establish the importance of conservation practices within this debate.
