Statewide Oklahoma NRCS WebinarTue, 18 May 2021 09:45:24 CDT
Statewide Oklahoma NRCS Webinar to include information on the Environmental Quality Incentives Program Conservation Incentive Contract, Farm Bill updates, Simple Steps to Apply for NRCS Programs and much more on June 8
Time – whether you keep it on your watch, your phone or the dash of your pickup – is a very important resource for you as an agricultural producer. The Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and Oklahoma Tribal Conservation Advisory Council (OTCAC) realize and appreciate that.
That’s why our NRCS and OTCAC FREE virtual webinar scheduled for 1 p.m., June 8 is a perfect solution for getting the answers to your conservation questions and receiving new conservation information.
Wherever you are in Oklahoma – Panhandle to southeast, northeast to southwest, Red River to the Kansas line or somewhere in the middle – you don’t have to leave the house, the field or the barn, we will bring it to you through a Zoom Meeting (Please see registration information below).
The NRCS has 21 Teams across Oklahoma’s 77 counties. However, this webinar is for everyone. Plus, we have found that producers from not only throughout Oklahoma, but throughout the region and the nation have joined our webinars to gather very important information.
This webinar offers a wealth of information. The agenda includes: Environmental Quality Incentives Program Conservation Incentive Contract; information on Advance Payments available in Environmental Quality Incentives Program; 2018 Farm Bill changes to Conservation Stewardship Program and Simple Steps to Apply for NRCS Programs.
“With the signing of the 2018 Farm Bill new regulations and programs where authorized, NRCS has published the final regulations of these programs and has begun to implement these new rules and programs,” said Stacy Riley, Oklahoma NRCS Assistant State Conservationist for Programs. “We hope you can attend this webinar to hear about some of the exciting changes brought about by the 2018 Farm Bill.”
Working together is a key aspect in every way.
“With some of the restrictions we are dealing with from COVID-19 it is more important than ever that USDA and partners identify ways to continue to communicate and provide information to farmers and ranchers,” said NRCS State Conservationist Gary O’Neill. “These webinars are a way that information can be passed along to farmers and ranchers virtually and serve as a way to address their questions and concerns regarding available assistance and any upcoming new opportunities. I encourage landowners and operators to utilize these webinars as a way to learn of assistance opportunities and to see firsthand how this format can be an effective way of communication and the passing along of critical information.”
The webinar is open to the public. To attend participants will need to register in advance via the link below and follow the link in the email generated after registration to attend. It is that easy! If reasonable accommodation is needed, please notify Dr. Carol Crouch, NRCS, Carol.Crouch@ok.usda.gov.
