The project team assembling this product includes Amy Schmidt, Leslie Johnson, and Rick Koelsch, University of Nebraska-Lincoln; Erin Cortus and Melissa Wilson, University of Minnesota; and Dan Andersen, Iowa State University. These resources represent our recommendations for discussing the Value of Manure.
This product was assembled with financial assistance from the North Central Region Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education program. NCR-SARE is one of four regional offices that run the USDA Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program, a nationwide grants and education program to advance sustainable innovation to American agriculture.
Even though we may not realize it, use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a part of our everyday lives. This webinar is centered around the potential impacts PFAS can have on agricultural production. This presentation was originally broadcast on February 19, 2021 in partnership with NRCS Conservation Webinar series. Continue reading “PFAS in Agricultural Operations”
