Our agricultural program here at the District offers numerous benefits to the community beyond the typical nutrient management and conservation planning approach, we just didn't know how to bundle or speak to those services. Coming out of our strategic planning session, we began speaking about our agricultural program in terms of wrap around services, or the concept of a whole farm approach. Under this approach we certainly help with conservation planning and nutrient management issues, but we expanded our scope and focus to include the following services as well:

Farm and Soil Assessments

Energy Conservation

Healthy Soil Practices

Erosion & Sediment Services

Best Management Practices

Integrated Pest Management
