About this event
Carbon cycling in soil is a complex, but important topic. At SWAT MAPS, our fundamental goal is to understand the influences of soil, water, and topography on in-field variability and utilization of soil-applied nutrients. How might soil pH and texture affect carbon use efficiency and other nutrients such as nitrogen or phosphorus? How does fertilizer, crop residue, or other soil amendments help build soil organic carbon and what might be happening from zone to zone to those inputs?
Jordon Wade, assistant professor of soil health and fertility at the University of Missouri will join us for the next Agronomy Insights webinar on March 8, at 9:00 am CST. Much of Jordon’s work focuses on on-farm trials and decision support tools for farmers. He has experience in nutrient management and developing soil health indicators and is also the Director of the University of Missouri’s Soil Health Assessment.
