conservation and sustainable agricultural systems that are beneficial for soil, water, air and wildlife
resources and are productive and profitable for agriculture.
Wheat as a cover crop in Iowa protects soil from erosion and builds soil quality. A hidden benefit may be reduced nitrous oxide emissions from fertilized farm fields. Nitrous oxide is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
Plan to join CTIC's Conservation In Action Tour in Northwest Ohio, to begin with a social event on the evening of August 8, 2011. The tour will focus on solutions to issues such as increased algae, sediment and soluble phosphorus in the Maumee River and Bay and Lake Erie.
