Congressmen LaMalfa, Conaway Support Voluntary Conservation Practices for Improving Soil Health

Tue, 25 Jun 2019 12:37:07 CDT

Congressmen LaMalfa, Conaway Support Voluntary Conservation Practices for Improving Soil Health Today, the House Agriculture Subcommittee on Conservation and Forestry held a hearing on the importance of soil health. After the hearing, Subcommittee Ranking Member Doug LaMalfa (CA-1) and Ranking Member K. Michael Conaway (TX-11) made the following remarks:


“Today’s hearing has not only highlighted the environmental benefits of sustained soil health, but also highlighted how these practices can help optimize inputs, increase resiliency and improve yields, regardless of weather patterns. It’s also a reminder that locally-led, voluntary conservation practices work. Through the programs included in the 2018 Farm Bill, our farmers and ranchers are voluntarily reducing soil erosion, helping to improve water quality and preserving farmland for future generations,” said Subcommittee Ranking Member LaMalfa.



“Throughout 2018 Farm Bill deliberations, producers consistently called for resources that would allow them to adopt practices like cover cropping. I am proud of the expanded authorities and increased funding to EQIP— championed by this committee — which will significantly help producers implement more targeted and meaningful conservation practices that address soil health,” said Ranking Member Conaway.
