Want to Join a Regenerative Ag Research Project?

Cal Poly SLO is working with UC Davis on a project funded by FFAR (Foundation for Food and Agriculture). The goal is to determine the impacts of long-term regenerative agricultural practices on carbon sequestration and soil health in Pinot Noir vineyards in California.

The regenerative practices include compost, cover crop, no-till, and livestock grazing. Cal Poly SLO is looking for two types of participants:
 
  1. Growers with Pinot Noir vineyards that have adopted one or more of these practices (compost, cover crop, no-till, and livestock grazing) for 5 years or more.
  2. Growers with Pinot Noir vineyards that have not adopted any of these practices (compost, cover crop, no-till, and livestock grazing) for 10 years or more.

If you are interested in participating in this study, please contact Corinne Butler at corinnebutler97@gmail.com or call/text at (714) 398-9193.
