Trials examined weed control, soil quality, tree nutrition, and water use. Also monitored for voles, and testing potential for mulch to host nematodes for control of codling moth larvae. David Granatstein, WSU CSANR, Wenatchee.
Agriculture can be both a source and a sink for greenhouse gases. In this webinar, the presenters discuss these roles of agriculture, how management affects them, and ways in which organic farming systems in particular may influence greenhouse gases.

Climate Friendly Farming Final Report: Improving the Carbon Footprint of Agriculture in the Pacific Northwest
The WSU Center for Sustaining Agriculture & Natural Resources established the Climate Friendly Farming Project in 2003 with an initial grant from the Paul G. Allen Family Foundation. This report represents the culmination of research and assessment of the potential for improved management and technology deployment to reduce agricultural greenhouse gas emissions in the Pacific Northwest.
