High tech research seeks climate change answers down on the farm

While Congress and the Obama administration consider climate change legislation, a group of researchers labor quietly at field test plots and on computers across the country in work that may offer answers for those decision makers in Washington and assist producers in making smart decisions to mitigate climate change on their own operations.

One such effort is the Greenhouse Gas Reduction through Agricultural Carbon Enhancement network (GRACEnet) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Agricultural Research Service. GRACEnet is a research program to assess soil carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas (nitrous oxide, methane, and carbon dioxide) emissions mitigation through use of various agricultural management approaches.
