Farmers share their conservation tips

Working at CBF has it's advantages, but sometimes the news and feedback you get on a wide range of topics is just…impressive. On the, Ted Shelsby wrote, in his On the Farm section:

"Many farmers hire scouts to search their fields, identify problems, recommend management techniques and implement action to protect crops. Homeowners can take similar management steps before turning to pesticides."�

The more I work at CBF the more I learn just how much we as homeowners, farmers and inhabitants of the Chesapeake Bay region have an impact our soil and water resources; both positively and negatively. I was really impressed with the amount of information that the farmers offered that home owners are able to put in place for a healthier environment and bay friendly home. Some of the tips seem like common sense, but if they were common place we'd all be working towards a healthier land and bay.

Take some time to check out "Farmers Share Their Conservation Tips".
