What will you learn? Participants will learn about a new one-stop resource for air quality, dust mitigation, wind erosion and available resources to support on-the-ground conservation. An introduction to the newly published Dust Mitigation Handbook – a collaborative project between the USDA Southern Plains and Southwest Climate Hubs, USDA Agricultural Research Service, and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. The Handbook represents a “OneUSDA” vision for conservation management under varying and changing environmental conditions, and is intended for resource managers in USDA and other land management agencies who are struggling with dust challenges and working with producers to craft solutions. Lead author Steve Smarik, NRCS State Resource Conservationist for Arizona and Liaison to the USDA Southern Plains and Southwest Climate Hubs, shares his knowledge and experience gained from nearly 40 years of work in agricultural conservation in this one-stop resource for managing wind erosion, air quality and dust mitigation. The webinar will cover some of the highlights of the handbook including: impacts of particulate matter, climate considerations, wind erosion models, conservation planning, wind erosion on cropland and wind erosion on rangeland, natural areas and unpaved surfaces, and USDA programs available to address wind erosion.
