The purpose of these two surveys as part of a multi-institution grant on climate change research and education is to gain additional insight on the ‘Water quality’ and ‘Soil carbon markets’ issues. The time required to complete these surveys should be no more than 10 minutes. Please complete the surveys. If you have any additional questions regarding these surveys, please contact the lead PI, Dr. Rachna Tewari, at firstname.lastname@example.org

Mid-week rains arrived at just the right time to benefit tasseling corn and emerging soybeans. In Middle Tennessee, the completion of the first cutting of hay was delayed by wet weather.
