In this episode of the Precision Farming Dealer podcast, Frank Lessiter sits down with retired USDA soil scientist Don Reicosky, a leading expert on carbon cycle management in agriculture. An internationally recognized author and speaker, Reicosky was among the first to research the relationship between C02 and tillage.
Don discusses the research he’s conducted over the years, including how he got interested in the carbon cycle and why farmers need to focus on managing it. He explains why it’s more complicated than the common perception of carbon sequestration and discusses how carbon cycling fits into today’s carbon credits programs
In addition, Don talks about the role of carbon in climate change, the social implications of using no-till and cover crops, how sometimes farm management decisions are made using the wrong metrics and much more!
