Updates from #NCSTATECASM

N is too expensive to lose, but up to 50% of applied N can be lost in soil cycling. @AlexWoodleySoil is studying if EEFs can improve N use efficiency, reduce GHGs, and potentially reduce farm inputs. He’s looking beyond yield. #NCSTATECASM

We have 50+ folks coming to Hyde County tomorrow for a saltwater intrusion tour. Major impacts occurring to soils and crops in coastal NC. We have been sampling #soils all week #NCSTATECASM

What’s the relationship between soil quality and climate? Dr. Bob answers. Exactly the work #NCSTATECASM is addressing. https://coastalreview.org/2022/06/climate-change-sharpens-focus-on-nc-farms-soil-quality/
