Abstract

Discussions on water quality mitigation within agricultural landscapes are wrought with complex and often opposing perspectives on pathways for remediation. This seminar will present on the recent developments and findings of the USDA’s Production and Conservation Tradeoff (PaCT) Assessment tool; a novel, whole system approach towards discovering multifunctional opportunities for enhanced ecosystem service outcomes in these politically and ecological sensitive ecosystems.
