Learn about how Denver Botanic Gardens Chatfield Farms is working to develop vegetable farming systems that eliminate synthetic fertilizers, increase soil water holding capacity, and stimulate soil microbial activity all while sequestering more carbon.
Participants will learn how the practices that promote healthy soils can also lead to positive outcomes for water quality, water security and other environmental benefits, with a focus on the California context.
Biochar is a term used to describe charred, organic material that is applied to soils with the intent to improve soil properties. Many sources of organic matter may be used, but can impact the properties of the biochar.
The effects of urban development write a profound signature on the landscape. Soils are inevitably compacted and regraded or paved over.
There is a soil-plant continuum—an ecological symbiosis—that is essential for the growth and sustainability of all vegetation.
This webinar will demonstrate the role carbon plays in crop rotations with cover crops. Participate in this training to learn how carbon enters the plant and ultimately the soil.
A soil moisture sensor-based automated irrigation system was trialed in a commercial floriculture greenhouse to determine what benefits these types of systems may offer to herbaceous ornamental producers.
Mulch is often applied in landscape planting beds for weed control, but little research has focused specifically on mulch and preemergence (PRE) herbicide combinations.
Understanding carbon footprint (CF) terminology and the science underlying its determination is important to minimizing the negative impacts of new product development and assessing positive or negative cradle-to-grave lifecycle impacts.
As the pace of urban development increases, urban green spaces, and urban trees in particular, come in direct conflict with bulldozers and backhoes.
