272 Supporting Ecosystem Services with Conservation Agriculture: II

Poster Session
S06 Soil & Water Management & Conservation Ecosystem services can be either degraded or enhanced with contemporary agricultural practices.  Conservation agricultural systems are diverse, but have three key principles that can be used and modified to improve ecosystem services: (1) minimizing soil disturbance, (2) maximizing soil surface cover, and (3) stimulating biological activity.  Greater appreciation is needed of the value of a diversity of conservation agricultural approaches to meet the growing interest of farmers, scientists, and society in developing a better environment that provides robust ecosystem functioning.  This symposium will bring together a diversity of topics and approaches under the theme of enhancing ecosystem services with conservation agricultural approaches.
