Rethinking Intensive Agriculture from an Ecosystem Perspective

Channel: Agronomy Department

08 Nov 2018, 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm @ 2050 Agronomy Hall

by Dr. Evan H. DeLucia. In society's quest to feed an ever-increasing human population, more and more land under native vegetation is converted to intensive row-crop agriculture. Land conversion and changes in management practices affect the exchange of greenhouse gases and energy with the atmosphere. Prudent land management practices can meet society's growing demand for food, fiber, and fuel.
