Research Project: Research and Education Best Management Practice for Sustainable Production of Soybean under Climate Change

Location: National Soil Dynamics Laboratory

Project Number: 6420-12000-010-12
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Oct 01, 2011
End Date: Jan 31, 2014

Objective:
This research develops sustainable farming systems that will enhance (i) soil quality,(ii) soybean yield and yield stability under environmental and biotic stresses, and (iii) environmental quality and sustainability; and that will accommodate expected climate variability.

Approach:
The main focus of this project is to (i) develop best management practices that include no-till, cover crops, crop rotations, and gypsum; (ii) characterize their effectiveness in improving soil and crop productivity, and carbon sequestration and in reducing greenhouse gaseous loss to the environment.
