Description:

Strategies to Minimize the Impacts Of Coastal Flooding and Salt Water on Agricultural Lands<br /> Managing the impact of saltwater inundation will require farmers to use more adaptive agricultural practices. With better site assessment tools and implementation of appropriate conservation practices, producers in these impacted areas may not need to completely abandon their affected fields. In addition, potential income opportunities may be possible by growing value-added, niche conservation plants that also provide valuable ecosystem services. Join Christopher Miller, Manager/Plant Specialist with the USDA-NRCS Cape May Plant Materials Center as he discusses methods for dealing with flooding and saltwater on farms.
