USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Florida has announced it will conduct a State Technical Committee meeting on March 3 by web conference. The meeting, slated for 9:30 a.m. to noon, is available to the public. NRCS will solicit recommendations for establishing program criteria and priorities for conservation in Florida.
The committee, chaired by NRCS Florida State Conservationist Juan Hernandez, is composed of individuals and groups from a variety of agricultural and natural resource interests, as well as farmers. While the State Technical Committee has no implementation or enforcement authority, USDA gives strong consideration to the Committee’s recommendations.
