Carbon sequestration is a hot topic these days. But what are they and what markets are available for U.S. agriculture? How is carbon measured, reported and verified? Answers to these questions will be the focus of the opening presentations at the Texas Alliance for Water Conservation (TAWC) 16th annual field day, August 19, 2021, at the FiberMax Center of Discovery, Lubbock. 

"We are all about water and we know that water is our primary limited resource, as far as ag production in this region," said TAWC Project Director Rick Kellison. "But you can't talk about water conservation and water management without talking about soil health. Because there seems to be more interest, by even nonagricultural entities as it pertains to soil health, we're doing our best to get the as much of the best information to producers as we can." 

The field day will begin at 9 am. with a welcome from Tamara Daniel, executive director, Texas Soil and Water Conservation Board, and conclude at 1:30 p.m. with a weather outlook by Jody James, National Weather Service meteorologist. 

The field day will also include a producer panel with four Texas Plains producers discussing the utilization of conservation tillage in dryland and irrigated fields. Following a catered, free lunch, Jeff Miller with Forefront Agronomy will present, "Cowboys and Cover Crops."
