Conservation Practices on Cultivated Cropland: A Comp arison of CEAP I and CEAP II Survey Data and Modeling < /o:p>

 \;

Thursday\, April 28th\, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET

& nbsp\;

How has co nservation on cultivated cropland changed since the beginning of the 21st century? A new report released by USDA’\;s Natural Resourc es Conservation Service (NRCS) Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CE AP) demonstrates progress made through voluntary conservation over a 10-ye ar period. It found significant gains for soil health and soil carbon stor age\, while also identifying areas where additional and targeted nutrient management strategies are needed.

Findings from the report will inform future conserva tion strategies\, including USDA’\;s efforts to tackle the climate cr isis.

& nbsp\;

For this r eport\, farmer survey data was collected from 2003-2006 and again from 201 3-2016. NRCS evaluates conservation practice adoption through the CEAP Cro pland Assessment\, using a combination of farmer surveys\, land use and so ils information\, along with resource models.

In this webinar\, Dr. Lee Norf leet\, CEAP Modeling Team Leader at NRCS\, will present findings on change s in practice adoption trends\, including conservation tillage\, cover cro ps\, structural practices\, irrigation practices\, and advanced technologi es such as enhanced-efficiency fertilizers and variable rate fertilization to improve efficiency. He will also discuss the impacts of these practice s on sediment and nutrient losses\, carbon sequestration\, water use and f uel use.
