Friday afternoon we visited the USDA NRCS Plant Materials Center (PMC), located on the Mokelumne River learning about PMC operations and cover crops with a focus on the NRCS Soil Health Initiative, and field soil health assessment factors.  Comparisons were observed between conventional tillage practices and no-till (conservation) tillage and cover crop rotations. The Columbia (Fluvent) soil series was viewed.

prednisone without a script On Earth Day, April 22nd, we visited Staten Island in the Delta, and talked with The Nature Conservancy managers, Dawit Zeleke and Morgan Johnson, who discussed the challenges of managing for wildlife habitat in relation to supporting that operation with agriculture, by legal mandate. This entails Sand Hill Crane habitat requirements, crop rotations, managing mineral and organic soils, sub-irrigation methodology, fertility management, herbicide management, levee maintenance and the regulatory balancing act.  Truly fascinating.  Oh, and then there are the Delta issues!   It was a rare opportunity to view the ‘peat dirt’ and the ‘yellow dirt’ (as they call it) side-by-side. We toured the island and looked at the Rindge (Histosol) and Valdez (Fluvent) series.
