Soil Organic Carbon Mapping Project Webinar

05/05/20, 10:00 am - 11:00 am

The California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is announcing a stakeholder workshop on the development of a soil organic carbon map for California. CDFA is looking to engage interested parties to provide early feedback as the map develops. The map will serve as an indicator of soil health as California takes multiple actions to sequester carbon in agricultural soils to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

As part of this process, CDFA will develop a data repository system for soils data submitted to CDFA’s Healthy Soils Program.

The workshop will be held via webinar and will be presented on two separate dates (same content) to maximize participation.

Participants must register in advance. Please note, the same content will be given at both sessions:

A written comment period on the development of the map is also established. Questions and comments should be submitted to cdfa.oefi@cdfa.ca.gov by 5 p.m. PDT, May 21, 2020.
