USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub to Host Soil Health Conference for Central Oklahoma - May 17thThu, 25 Apr 2019 14:47:05 CDT
As part of their ongoing commitment to help production agriculture in Oklahoma and the Southern Plains region of the United States, Redlands Community College and the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub in partnership with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) will be hosting a Central Oklahoma Soil Health Tour from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday, May 17. This event will provide agriculture producers an opportunity to see firsthand some of the soil health work being done in the area and visit with agriculture producers about what practices they are undertaking on their land.
“We are very excited to partner with the USDA Southern Plains Climate Hub, NRCS and OACD to make this event happen,” said Jack Bryant, president of Redlands Community College. “This is a great opportunity for ag producers to see firsthand soil health practices on the land and to discuss soil health with other farmers and ranchers who are undertaking these activities on their land.”
Registration for the tour will begin at 8 a.m. at the Royse Ranch classroom building located north of El Reno at 9304 US-81. The tour will include stops at the Redlands Learning Site at Royse Ranch, the Cheyenne and Arapaho soil health demonstration pasture site at Concho, the farm of Richard and Matt Alig west of Okarche and Pope Hilltop Farms in Loyal. Lunch will be served at the Fellowship Hall of the Loyal First United Methodist Church and the tour will return to Royse Ranch at approximately 3 p.m.
Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by May 10 by contacting Clay Pope at 405-699-2087 or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no charge for the meeting, and lunch will be provided.
