Nitrogen Cycling and Losses in Agricultural Systems

Nitrogen is a critical resource for growing food. Excess nitrogen, however, has a variety of negative impacts. Nitrous oxide for example, is a potent greenhouse gas resulting from agricultural production. Join Kristy Borrelli, Extension Specialist with the Regional Approaches to Climate Change Project, as she provides an overview of the nitrogen cycle and its importance in agriculture. Information presented will provide a foundation for two additional webinars this spring covering nitrous oxide emissions and mitigation strategies in Pacific Northwest cropping systems. These webinars are being co-produced by the Regional Approaches to Climate Change for Pacific Northwest Agriculture Project (REACCH) and WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources (CSANR).

Participate in this webinar if you want to learn about N cycling and N fertilizer management in agricultural cropping systems.
