  5. ALUFS Meeting Notes 19 April 2019

    Final notes on iCAP objective reviews were made. Challenges in establishing best management practices were addressed. Team members thought of a possible new iCAP objective addressing them but decided to have the Director of Crop Sciences Research and Education Centers involved with the team to think of other solutions. It was decided that the PWR team should handle food waste issues, as ALUFS has been making the most progress on the production side.

    A plan to gather information on agricultural greenhouse gas emissions tools was intitiated. Many of the goals related to landscaping have been met (for example, incorporation of sustainability into the Campus Master Plan); in iCAP review, the team deicided that more goals would be needed if work were to be continued in this field. The team brought up the impact on food choice regarding greenhouse gases, as compared to transportation.

  8. ALUFS004 South Farm Management Plan Recommendation - Submittal

    The ALUFS SWATeam submitted a recommendation to the iWG stating, "A committee of ACES faculty, farm personnel, and iSEE members will develop a comprehensive and cooperative management plan for all non-research agricultural land on the UIUC South farms that promotes sustainable practices and implements current best management practices. The plan should account for crop rotations, soil management, nutrient application, and pest management. This strategy must consider the needs and wishes of the departments that rely on the productivity of this land for financial return. The plan should offer detailed recommendations, costs of implementation, and estimated reductions in greenhouse gas emissions from adopted practices. The committee should include faculty with expertise in biogeochemistry as well as staff responsible for agricultural production."
