Soil Carbon Amendment Webinar

April 18 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Have you been growing cover crops year after year and still aren’t seeing soil organic matter increase? Are you tired of soil moisture swings, seeing water puddle on your fields and watching your crops and pastures dry up a few weeks later? Do you worry that you’re not getting the most out of your fertilizer investments? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, you may be interested in the Soil Carbon Amendment (SCA) webinar, hosted by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Soil Health Subcommittee and American Farmland Trust (AFT).

  • Arthur Siller, Soil Health Specialist and Olivia Golden, Urban Agriculture Educator of UMass Extension will discuss compost application rates, the effect of compost on soil organic matter and other soil properties and the differences between manure and compost.
  • Deborah Aller, Extension Associate, Cornell University will present on her research with biochar and its positive effects on soil health.
  • Kate Parsons, Resource Conservationist, NRCS will cover the financial assistance that is available for eligible agricultural producers to apply compost, biochar or other soil carbon amendments using NRCS’ new Conservation Practice Code 336 (SCA).

And of course, no soil health webinar is complete without a very brief review of the soil health principles. This webinar is designed for both farmers and technical service providers. Please register by Monday April 15th to learn how Soil Carbon Amendment can help you advance towards your soil organic matter goals.
