NPR Feature: California Farmers Try New Strategy To Cut Carbon
NPR recently did an interview featuring Kate Scow, a member of the CSFS Diversified Agroecosystem Research Cluster. The article shows the relationship between cover crops and soil health and explains how farmers in California are using that relationship as means of controlling carbon emissions in the state.
“Soil is alive. There’s farmers that know that. The deeper you can get [carbon] in the soil, like, especially below the plow layer, the more stable and secure it’s going to be.” – Kate Scow, Cluster Member, UC Davis.
