APAS Prairie Agriculture Carbon Summit

The APAS Carbon summit will bring together agricultural producers, researchers, government policy makers and the society at large to explore and discuss the role that agricultural practices currently play in the greenhouse gas balance, and the exciting potential that new technologies can provide.
We will also be investigating how public policy can recognize these contributions and design policy to maximize potential research and uptake into new technologies and management practices.
The summit will also discuss and identify knowledge gaps that need to be addressed.
