Soil Health and Climate Resilience

As part of the Soil Health Nexus Digital Cafe Series, Gregg Sanford with University of Wisconsin, presents “Soil Health and Climate Resilience”. Diverse and perennial cropping systems are recognized for their soil health benefits, but that’s not all these cropping systems have to offer. A recent analysis using 26 years of data from the Wisconsin Integrated Cropping Systems Trail (WICST) shows that these systems also provide the co-benefits of long-term stable production and resilience to a changing climate, both hallmarks of sustainable or regenerative agricultural systems. In this webinar, Gregg discusses the findings from this long-term analysis of perennial and diverse agroecosystems and their importance for farming in a changing climate.
