Archbold Hosts USDA Long-term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) Network Meeting
The last week of November, scientists in the USDA’s Long-term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) network along with partnering institutions got together at Archbold Biological Station to discuss opportunities and challenges in developing innovative climate-resilient agricultural practices. The three-day meeting was a chance for Archbold to collaborate with important partners like the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), The Nature Conservancy (TNC), USDA Climate Hubs, The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Living Labs. As a group of more than 50 collaborators from LTAR and partnering institutions, we were able to collectively identify important shared stakeholders and research priorities to find solutions that are impactful.
