Pacific Northwest Agriculture and Climate Change Webinar Series
Managing the risks associated with a changing climate is becoming increasingly important for agriculture in the Pacific Northwest. The WSU CSANR Pacific Northwest Agriculture and Climate Change webinar series takes a deeper look at climate change topics of importance to the diverse agricultural systems of the Pacific Northwest. The series provides up-to-date, research-based information that is relevant to the region as it becomes available. The webinars are intended for anyone who is interested in how a changing climate might impact agriculture and how current research can inform ways to manage the associated risks.
Upcoming Webinars in the Series
- April 17th, 2014 at 10 a.m. PDT- Nitrogen Management and Climate Change Mitigation in Pacific Northwest Cropping Systems. Presented by Georgine Yorgey, Associate in Research, Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources, Washington State University.
Agriculture is the main source of human-produced nitrous oxide, a potent greenhouse gas. Join Georgine Yorgey, Associate in Research at WSU’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources (CSANR) as she provides an overview of nitrous oxide mitigation strategies that could be applicable in Pacific Northwest cropping systems. Previous webinars (archived below) provided a foundation on nitrogen cycling and losses in agricultural systems, and an overview of nitrous oxide emissions in cropland agriculture. These webinars are 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 strategies for mitigating nitrous oxide emissions in Pacific Northwest agricultural cropping systems.
