The Virginia Tech Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences has posted recordings of the entire Introduction to Land Application of Biosolids webinar that was presented in November and December.
The webinars are designed to provide basic information about biosolids to local officials—administrators and their staff, elected officials, planners, local attorneys and other interested individuals. Those who could not participate in the live sessions may view each presentation (slides and narration by Tech Crop & Soil Environmental experts) by going to the Virginia Cooperative Extension Biosolids webpage and clicking on the “Training” tab.
“The new comprehensive biosolids regulations managed by DEQ are now being implemented,” said Greg Evanylo, professor and Extension Specialist, “and there are many people within our local governments who could benefit by having basic information on biosolids, its regulations and how it is used on farms and forests in Virginia.”
The Department of Crop and Soil Environmental Sciences provides teaching, research and outreach on environmental and agronomic (crops and soils) sciences. Currently more than 230 students are enrolled in its two undergraduate degree programs, Environmental Science, and Crop and Soil Science, and more than 60 graduate students are studying for M.S. or Ph.D. degrees.
