Conservation Planning . . . More Than Just a Good Idea?

It is common knowledge that planning to conserve natural resources is a good idea and the right thing to do. But did you know that conservation planning also makes good business sense? If you develop and implement a conservation plan you may receive priority status when and if you decide to apply for certain Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) programs. Also, it is one of the best tools around to help you assess and inventory your resources so you can make better decisions to help you reach your land use and natural resource goals subsequently improving your bottom line.

Summertime -Dr. Victor Martin

It's pretty hard not to notice that summer came hard and fast this year. After several years of what for Kansas were cool, wet summers, Mother Nature has reminded us of what our summers can involve.
