Join a 1-hour webinar about accelerating the adoption of Edge of Field (EoF) practices to achieve an integrated, whole-farm approach to working lands conservation. The webinar is hosted by The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS), and Meridian Institute.
Sustainability is becoming mainstream, and real progress is being made improving the outcomes of crop production. But larger-scale changes are needed to meet greenhouse gas, water and other sustainability goals. EoF practices like wetlands, saturated buffers and drainage water management are conservation technologies that provide on-farm and downstream benefits.
TNC, SWCS and Meridian Institute convened a 6-month collaborative process to develop an Edge of Field Roadmap to drive coordinated and collective actions across the agriculture community and catalyze widespread adoption of EoF practices to meet water quality and biodiversity goals. This process engaged diverse stakeholders including agricultural producers, NGOs, associations, agribusinesses, and others to draw from diverse experiences, expertise and perspectives.
During the webinar we will highlight the importance of EoF practices, share insights from industry leaders, and facilitate a discussion on how to scale up technologies to create a more regenerative agricultural system.
