Diverse groups of people need to anticipate outcomes and return-on-investment from different conservation strategies to manage soil and water in a changing climate. Additionally, communities greatly benefit from extension and decision support tools to help make soil and water management decisions during and in preparation for drought. This seminar presents new approaches for soil and water conservation in different crops across California and the Midwest US.
