Researchers Seek Producers' Opinions on Conservation 'Certainty' Plans

Researchers Seek Producers' Opinions on Conservation 'Certainty' Plans
Researchers at Oklahoma State University, in cooperation with the Oklahoma Conservation Commission, Natural Resource Conservation Service, and Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry, are conducting a survey to determine if agricultural producers in Oklahoma are interested in participating in a potential agricultural “certainty program”. In a certainty program agricultural producers would voluntarily enroll into a program where they receive a conservation plan written by the U.S.D.A. Natural Resource Conservation Service or a similar entity. After the producer implements the recommended conservation practices, they can elect to sign an agreement with state and federal partners in which he or she agrees to maintain the implemented conservation practices for a specified amount of time. In exchange, the producer receives assurance, or “certainty” that they will not have to implement any additional practices for the length of the contract if additional state and/or federal regulations are implemented. In other words, such a program would protect agricultural producers from potential future regulations.

If you are an agricultural producer in Oklahoma, researchers are seeking your input. Click here for the survey; it will only take about ten minutes to complete. By completing the survey, researchers say you will be helping state and federal agencies determine if this type of program should be created. Also, your input could help the state develop a program that would best benefit you, your agricultural operation, and the natural resources of the state. Additionally, if you choose to participate, you will be entered into a raffle to win one of six $50.00 gift cards. This is an opportunity to help shape policy in Oklahoma.
