Kansas Sorghum Project

Kansas farmers have limited technical capacity to quantify the effectiveness of farm practices in improving soil health and water quality. This project, conducted in partnership with NRCS and titled “Community and market partnerships to leverage the creation and application of a technology platform, KansCAT, for conservation of soil and water systems in Kansas,” consists of three objectives aimed at addressing this problem. We propose to

I) deploy a database for storing and assessing practice information,

II) increase literacy of farmers and conservation partners using this information and

III) leverage conservation practices for value in carbon-focused ethanol markets.
