As part of the Soil Health Nexus Digital Cafe Series, Gary Lesoing with Nebraska Extension, presents “Cover Crop/Soil Health On-Farm Research Partnership Between UNL and NRCS”. This presentation was originally broadcast on June 10, 2020.
This webinar explains the development of the On-Farm Research Partnership between the NRCS and the Nebraska On-Farm Research Network and how it is used to collect production and soil data from NRCS Soil Health Demonstration Sites across Nebraska. Gary shares 3-years of crop yield production data collected from a local project I am involved with and soil data collected by NRCS and a UNL Graduate Student at the site. He also shares some results of cover crop biomass measurements collected at various sites and how this partnership has created a valuable resource. Nebraska Extension, UNL Horticulture & Agronomy and NRCS are partnering together to provide soil health and crop production data for the research data base and to share at local field days, training sessions and conferences for farmers, ag consultants and ag educators in Nebraska.
