Release No.: 022014   ­

Gainesville, FL., November 26, 2013– In an effort to assist agricultural producers in meeting their land management goals, while protecting our natural resources,  the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will conduct a State Technical Advisory Committee Meeting on December 3, 2013, at the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Doyle Conner Agriculture Building Auditorium.  Located at 1911 S.W. 34th Street, Gainesville, Florida, 32608, the Doyle Conner Building is approximately two blocks north of Archer Road.

The meeting is open to the public and will begin at 10 a.m. Chaired by Russell Morgan, USDA-NRCS, State Conservationist, the objective of this meeting will be to provide an overview on the status of NRCS conservation programs and to solicit recommendations for establishing technical guidelines and program criteria and priorities in Florida.

Technical Committees are composed of individuals and groups who represent a diverse group with interests in a variety of natural resource sciences and occupations. Although the State Technical Committee has no implementation or enforcement authority, USDA gives strong consideration to the Committee's recommendations.
