Learn what’s new for USDA’s Farm Bill programs, including the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) during a workshop on April 11, 2017 from 5:30-8:30 p.m. at the Okmulgee Fairgrounds, 1901 North Oklahoma Avenue, Okmulgee.
“With the challenges facing agricultural producers right now, a good bet is to double down on conservation practices and invest in your soil,” said Roderick Dukes, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) District Conservationist for Okmulgee County. “Good conservation and soil health make farms and ranches more resilient to weather and market extremes. They also can mean less time spent in the tractor and more time with family.”
The workshop will be hosted by USDA, Okmulgee County Conservation District, Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council, Oklahoma Black Historical Research Project and Oklahoma Ag Credit. There will also be a special presentation on the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts’ Soil Health Producer Network.
The workshop is free and dinner will be provided. RSVP or request reasonable accommodations by April 7 with Roderick Dukes at 918-304-8155 or firstname.lastname@example.org; Jenifer Bailey at 918-304-8157; or Dr. Carol Crouch at 405-602-9331 or email@example.com.
