Join Oklahoma's Conservation Community for an Upcoming Soil Health Seminar in Durant on June 27

Mon, 05 Jun 2017 09:26:13 CDT

Join Oklahoma's Conservation Community for an Upcoming Soil Health Seminar in Durant on June 27 As part of their commitment to help production agriculture in Oklahoma and the Southern Plains of the United States, The Choctaw Nation, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Redlands Community College and the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub will be hosting a Soil Health Seminar on Tuesday June 27, 2017 from 5:30pm to 8pm in Durant. According to Gary Batton, Chief of the Choctaw Nation, this event, which is part of the ongoing soil health partnership between the Nation and NRCS, will provide farmers and ranchers an opportunity to learn about some of the options they have for the application of soil health practices in Southern Oklahoma and Northern Texas.



“We are very excited to partner with NRCS, Redlands Community College and the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub to make this event happen,” Batton said. “The farmers and ranchers in our area have several options for improving the health of their soil. By having something green and growing on their land as long as possible, ag producers can increase the microbial activity in their soil, improve fertilizer efficiency and help their soil increase its water holding capacity.”


Issues to be discussed at the event include grain and forage sorghum production; ongoing research on new crop species and varieties being conducted by the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS); producer perspectives on utilizing soil health practices; presentations from the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) on soil health and it’s benefits to ag production; the use of soil health practices and cover crops in wildlife management systems and an overview of the agriculture demonstration, education and outreach efforts being undertaken by the Choctaw Nation in partnership with NRCS.   


Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by June 19 by calling Clay Pope at 405-699-2087, Jack Hicks at 580-326-3201 (ext. 6019), Carol Crouch at 405-612-9331 or register by e-mail at claypope@gmail.com or carolcrouch@ok.usda.gov. There is no charge for the meeting and lunch will be provided. Registration will begin at 5:30 at the Choctaw Nation Community Center, located at 2750 Big Lots Parkway in Durant, Oklahoma.
