Every five years, Congress passes legislation that sets national agriculture, nutrition, conservation, and forestry policy, commonly referred to as the “Farm Bill.”
Farm bills establish voluntary programs within USDA that seek to improve environmental quality and conservation. Several of these programs include incentives related to irrigation systems and water used for irrigation.
These bills impact you as a grower or water manager and are often not well understood. As a result, many people miss opportunities available to them through the farm bill to improve their farms, ranches, and water management. This Friday, Michael Pippen will help us understand the farm bill and its impacts on farms, ranches, and water use. This will be an information session you don’t want to miss.
In this session, you will learn:
- History of the farm bill
- What is included in the current farm bill and(how it is organized
- Where/who to go to learn or communicate concerns about the bill
