The HoloRuminant Joint Dissemination Network (JDN) consists of 5 projects representing a complementary effort to reduce the environmental and climate footprint of livestock production - while guaranteeing genetic diversity and efficient production in a more constrained environment - by focusing on the mitigation of GHG emissions improving the health and welfare of farmed animals and increasing the sustainability of animal production systems. The project group joins forces to provide an environment to optimize and share efforts. Registration details for all webinars can be found HERE.Find out more »
This webinar is being organised by "4 per 1000" and is the second in their soil carbon science webinar series. Soil inorganic carbon (SIC), a pivotal component of terrestrial carbon stocks, contributes to up to half of the terrestrial C stock and holds significance in arid and semi-arid environments. Despite its importance in agriculture, CO2 sequestration, and climate regulation, SIC has received less attention compared to soil organic carbon (SOC). Recent findings challenge the notion of SIC's negligible contribution to…Find out more »
