This is a recording of a live webinar that took place on June 23, 2021.
Some of the benefits of shelterbelts have been known for a long time; windbreaks, trapping snow for moisture, providing habitat for birds and other wildlife. In this webinar you will learn more about their ability to sequester carbon and a tool that was developed at the University of Saskatchewan to help producers and land owners plan and design their shelterbelts, and the environmental and economic benefits for doing so.
Perennial vegetation strips can provide biodiversity and habitat for pollinators and other beneficial wildlife. In this webinar you will also learn about research currently being conducted as part of the OSCIII, that hopes to quantify the impact of management practices that support biodiversity in agricultural systems, and build resiliency into these systems to protect them from changing conditions and pest outbreaks.
Carbon Sequestration, biodiversity and sustainable agricultural practices have never been more important. This webinar aims to provide producers and landowners information about these practices and tools for implementation.
