The Future of Sustainable Agriculture: Carbon-Positive Farming, Nutrient Management and Beyond

From carbon sequestration, to nutrient management, to economic viability, the promise of sustainable agriculture is (quite literally) rooted in healthy soil. Science is beginning to prescribe specific agricultural practices to regenerate soil health. This panel will summarize expert consensus on the next generation of best practices, examine how companies, growers, farm input suppliers, environmentalists and others can work together to improve the key metrics, and discuss how the results of an ongoing National Soil Health Assessment could influence programmatic supply chain engagements by 2020.
