PFAS on Agricultural Operations
February 19 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
Even though we may not realize it, use of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a part of our everyday lives. These “forever” chemicals make up a family of over 4,000 human made compounds which have many beneficial properties such as repelling water, resisting heat and reducing friction. Since these chemicals are so persistent in the environment, they tend to accumulate over time. They can be found virtually everywhere from drinking water to plants and animals.
This webinar jointed hosted by NRCS and the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC) will address PFAS in biosolids, soils, and manures. Biosolids have been land applied for decades and manures for centuries. Both have provided valuable nutrients for crop production and organics to help build soil tilth. Discussion will be centered around the potential impacts PFAS can have on agricultural production.
The webinar will take place Friday, February 19, 2021 at 1:30PM CT. Presenters include:
- Dr. Linda Lee, Professor of Agronomy, Purdue University
- Ned Beecher, Special Projects Manager, North East Biosolids and Residuals Association (NEBRA)
Registration is not required. Join the Webinar at the scheduled start time.
