Soil Fauna: Animals of the Soil and the Role They Play in Soil Health [SS 04898] - Video

2014 - June Online Seminar - The presentation will review the different animals that are important to soil health. These soil animals feed on other animals and organic matter and contribute directly to nutrient cycling in soil when they release nutrients in their excreta. Soil animals improve soil structure by forming channels and pores, concentrating fine soil particles together into aggregates and by fragmenting and mixing organic matter through soil.

Different Techniques to Improve Soil Health [SS 04897] - Video

2014 - July Online Seminar - The soil biological component is not well understood and in many cases is taken for granted. However, it is the interaction of the physical, chemical and biological components which dictate how the soil will function. The challenge is how best to ramp up the soil’s biological activity without affecting crop yields or profits. Specific examples of different strategies to improve soil health will be explored. Although there are many ways to approach this, as with many things, the devil is in the details.

Soil Respiration and Nutrient Cycling [SS 04895] - Video

2014 - July Online Seminar - Soil CO2 Respiration is a common gauge used to assess soil health and to estimate potential nutrient mineralization. This presentation will cover the elements of measuring soil respiration with a focus on the Solvita CO2-Burst test monitored by ALP and NAPT labs. It will also cover measuring basal CO2 respiration in field-moist sample, and briefly introduce a new procedure for labile amino-N. The overall emphasis for soil health is from the perspective of someone doing it in the lab and partly in the field. The presenter will also review measuring root mass, earthworm counts and soil enzymes, and how these tests relate to each other and soil health.

Introduction to Soil Health and the Soil Food Web [SS 04896] - Video

2014 - June Online Seminar - The soil food web is the community of organisms living all or part of their lives in the soil. It describes a complex living system in the soil and how it interacts with the environment, plants, and animals. They range in size from the tiniest one-celled bacteria, algae, fungi, and protozoa, to the more complex nematodes and micro-arthropods, to the visible earthworms, insects, small vertebrates, and plants. These organisms eat and grow and impact the soil and move through the soil, making it possible to have clean water, clean air, and healthy plants. The presentation will looking at the overall functioning of the soil food web, how it is intertwined and how it benefits the soils and all living species both below and about ground.

Nozzles, Efficacy and the Environment - Maximizing Pesticide Applications [SS 04892] - Video

2014 - April Online Seminar - Nozzles play an important role in pesticide efficacy and off-target movement. Understanding the current nozzles on the market and how they perform is critical in today’s agricultural environment because of the rapidly evolving pesticide resistances and increasing scrutiny of pesticide drift. Being able to read a nozzle’s labeling, understand when and where to use specific nozzles and understanding what to expect from spray nozzles is imperative for all pesticide applicators and those making decisions on pesticide applications. New pesticide labels and programs such as the EPA’s DRT (drift reduction technology) program are designed to provide more information to applicators on risk of drift or how to maximize pesticide application efficacy. Additionally, new pesticide labels often contain information about weather conditions in which the pesticide should or should not be applied. A brief discussion of these condition and why labels are designed to avoid some environmental conditions will be included.

Blackleg Disease and Resistance Management[SS50438]

Disease surveys show an increase in blackleg incidence across the Canadian Prairies over the past few years. Canola growers may need to redeploy a more integrated approach to manage the disease. The Canola Council of Canada's new blackleg video has vivid images to help growers understand and identify the disease. It explains how genetic resistance works, and how growing varieties with the same type of resistance in a short rotation increases the selection pressure for blackleg races that can overcome specific resistance genes. After watching the video, test your knowledge with this short quiz. By successfully completing the quiz before November 30, 2014, you can earn 1 Integrated Pest Management CEU!

  • The Science and Technology Training Library – Webinar Portal for Conservation of Natural Resources at ConservationWebinars.net is a service of the Southern Regional Extension Forestry Office, North Carolina State University's Extension Forest Resources, Texas AgriLife Extension Service, other participating land-grant universities and the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. This portal serves as a launching point for live and archived conservation and natural resource webinars. Many of the webinars featured on the site provide Certified Crop Advisor continuing education credits, free of charge. When CCA CEUs are available for a webinar, the Educational Area and Self Study credits are shown on the web page that provides information to join the live or archived event.

  • Iowa State University Master of Science in Agronomy

    This is the first Master of Science in Agronomy you can earn from your home or office by using your computer and the Internet. The program was designed and is aimed at professionals working in industry and government-emphasizes development of superior problem-solving and communication skills. It is a 40-credit, non-thesis program that provides a diverse background in agronomy and related disciplines by integrating crop, soil, climate, and pest management information into a rigorous curriculum. Students in the M.S. in Agronomy Program also develop and complete a professional development project called a creative component.

    Built-in flexibility allows students to complete the program at their own pace relative to their professional, family, and other commitments. This means students can study when and where their schedule permits. The time required to complete the degree is flexible, and although it is possible to finish in two years, most students enroll in only one or two courses per semester while working full time. Therefore, most students achieve their masters in three to five years.

    CEUs can be obtained for these courses by completing a Self-Reported CEU form and submitting this form along with a course syllabus and course grade slip to the International CCA Office. CEUs are figured as 15 x semester credits and 9 x quarter credits and can be reported in only one CEU category.
