Plastina to Present at NAS Workshop

Alejandro Plastina will give a presentation, "Cover Crops by Region: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly in the Midwest," at a virtual workshop hosted by the Environmental Health Matters Initiative at the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

The virtual workshop will focus on actions that can be taken to address nitrogen contamination in the United States. Nitrogen is a commonly used input in crop farming; however, it can leak into drinking water supplies, which can cause adverse health effects.

The virtual sessions are scheduled to take place from 2:30-5:30 Eastern Standard Time every Thursday from January 28 to February 25, 2021. You can register for the event here.
