Oral Session
S06 Soil & Water Management & Conservation Soil conservation practices have been widely adopted on the Great Plains of North America over the past two decades. As such, this session will bring together American and Canadian researchers from the US Great Plains and the Canadian prairies to discuss the implications of this transformation in soil management practices on soil quality and crop production and as well as its wider societal benefits.
