Pamela Rodriguez, a Special Investigator with CDFA's Organic Program in Fresno, took time to visit CASI's NRI Project field on Friday, February 15th as part of the ongoing open house program showcasing soil health that is underway through June of 2019. Rodriguez works out of the Fresno CDFA office and has major responsibility for inspections of organic farms throughout much of the State. She was hosted by CASI's Jeff Mitchell, who took her out to the long-term NRI Project field where he showed her changes that have been detected in soil function and appearance due to twenty years of soil care management that includes the use of cover crops and no-tillage. Then, Mitchell also provided her with a presentation of the history of the NRI Project and a summary of the project's primary outcomes and findings since it was initiated in 1999. CASI is very grateful to Pamela Rodriguez for taking time to visit our site in Five Points!
