Lindsey Moore, a science photographer with KQED, visited the NRI Project field site on June 19th to shoot photos of the long-term study for conservation agriculture in California's San Joaquin Valley. KQED is the Public Broadcasting Service member television station for Northern California based in San Francisco. Moore was assigned the Five Points photo shoot that will contribute to an article that is being written by Mark Schapiro who had visited the field back in May to interview CASI's Tom Willey, Monte Bottens, and Jeff Mitchell. She recently completed her BA in photo journalism from San Francisco State University and is very much enjoying her work at the station that provides diverse and interesting opportunities to go out and capture photo records of a wide range of topics, activities and people. She was hosted by CASI's Mitchell who showed her the 20-year, “very important” NRI field, and the various problems that the CASI project team has been having this year with cover crop regrowth in the no-till cover crop system that is now being managed using organic farming techniques. CASI thanks Lindsey Moore and KQED for coming all the way out to Five Points to visit our study site!
