Sustainable - Corn - Crops, Climate, Culture and Change

This USDA funded project gathers data from 35 field sites and thousands of farmers in 9 Midwestern states, with the goal of creating a suite of practices for corn-based systems that:

  • retain and enhance soil organic matter and nutrient and carbon stocks.
  • reduce off-field nitrogen losses that contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and water pollution.
  • better withstand droughts and floods.
  • ensure productivity under different climatic conditions.

Through the Extension and Education aspects of this project, we are working with farmers, teachers and students to connect them with project analyses and promote collaborative learning.
