“Carbon farming” has gained momentum as a strategy to mitigate climate change by capturing and storing carbon in agricultural soils. Join Dr. Denise Finney for an inside look at research underway in her lab on the relationship between farming practices and climate change. She is currently investigating how choices farmers make about which crops to plant affect carbon storage in soil. This field day-style talk took place at Ursinus College's Whittaker Environmental Research Station in Dr. Finney's research fields.
