Agriculture + Environment

For the record

By March 22, 2011

A March 17 article, “Supervisor and scientist question county’s climate change plan,” quotes Dan Putnam, who referenced a draft of Yolo County’s Climate Action Plan that went before the Planning Commission Jan. 13 and the Board of Supervisors on Feb. 1.

In that draft, officials predicted a 25 percent decrease in nitrogen fertilizer usage would result in an increase in alfalfa crop yields.

The revised plan adopted by the Board of Supervisors at its March 15 meeting no longer uses fertilizer reductions for alfalfa as part of its strategy for curbing greenhouse gases.
