Log on to learn about market-based conservation

Agriculture.com Staff 05/14/2008 @ 6:43am

A real-time Web seminar on market-based conservation -- which allows farmers to generate extra income by implementing conservation practices -- will be held this Friday, May 16, on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Web site.

One example of market-based conservation is a program that generates carbon credit revenue with methane capture covers on manure lagoons and storage facilities.

Several speakers will be featured in the one-hour seminar. The Web meeting room opens at 1:15 p.m. Central Daylight Time, and the seminar will begin at 1:30. To view, go to http://connect.extension.iastate.edu/lpelc/.

Next month's seminar is June 20, and will discuss nutrient management for small-scale farms.
