Simple Steps to Better Soil Health. Join the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and NRCS soil scientists for a FREE soil health workshop and lunch. The workshop will explore how to manage your land for better soil health and healthy food. Speakers will discuss the soil and its biological components as they relate to grazing and cropping systems, rainwater infiltration, erosion resistance, drought resilience, and plant growth efficiency.

Our soils are often neglected, but there are some soils, some microbes and some grazing systems that will help our soils by investing in some simple soil health practices. The workshop will provide the opportunity for farmers and ranchers to learn simple steps to improve their operations' sustainability. "This workshop will provide a great opportunity for landowners to learn about different alternatives to consider in management of their grazinglands," stated Phillip Martin, NRCS Resource Conservationist.

NRCS partners for the workshop include, the Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (OTCAC), other USDA agencies and conservation groups. Conservation district partners include the West Caddo, South Caddo and Grady County Conservation Districts.

This event will include a locally-led survey to identify conservation resources concerns in your area, updates on conservation programs, Ag Census, and provide training on simple steps for better forage. Our conservation program discussions will be led by Farm Service Agency, National Agriculture Statistics Service, NRCS, and OCC.
