In an effort to provide the opportunity for local farmers to stay current on agricultural research and trends, as well as earn continuing education credits, the Wood Soil & Water Conservation District is introducing a new program providing stipends to producers who want to attend conferences.

This is a competitive grant available to Wood County SWCD Cooperators which provides reimbursement funds for attending local, state and national level training conferences, workshops, and seminars, relating to issues affecting implementation of sound conservation programs.

The goal is to select 20 farmers/cooperators that would be eligible for funds to pay for registration and offset travel costs to conferences, educational seminars and field days. Potential topics include how and why to plant cover crops, nutrient application and retention, conservation tillage, and others. Each selected farmer will then become a local resource, and will be asked to provide a report from the training sessions, agree to be a resource consultant, or asked to be a part of a panel discussion at local Wood SWCD producer meetings or field days.

Funds are limited to $450 per farmer. Receipts will be reimbursed up to the program limits until June 1. If you are interested in taking advantage of this opportunity, contact Wood SWCD at (419) 354-5517.
