Megan Schipanski, assistant professor, Soil and Crop Sciences, Colorado State University, will present “Leveraging plant diversity to manage soil water, carbon, and nitrogen in agricultural systems.” Crop and non-crop plants provide carbon inputs that can fuel belowground communities, mediate soil processes, and influence resource use efficiency. Using examples from rhizosphere, on-farm, and landscape scale research, she will discuss potential benefits and limitations of leveraging crop and cover crop diversity to improve agricultural sustainability.

Refreshments served at 3 pm.

The seminars are free and open to the public.
