Completing the Circle: Where does human waste fit into Sustainable Ag?

Please join INAG 248 at the Institute of Applied Agriculture to discuss - As global supplies of nutrients decrease (e.g. phosphorus), or become more expensive to produce (e.g. nitrogen), we will have to find ways to maximize the efficiency of our farming systems. Utilizing human "waste" back on farms is one way to do this, but there are several issues of concern. What is the best way to utilize human excrement both in industrialized nations where we have extensive sewer systems and in parts of the world that have little infrastructure in place for dealing with human waste? Led by: Natalie Lounsbury, graduate student in the Department of Environmental Science and Technology at the University of Maryland. Her research focuses on the use of cover crops for no-till organic vegetable production. {Will appear in FYI on Feb 26, 2013
