 The Noble Research Institute invites you to a hands-on field tour with Noble soils and crops consultant Jim Johnson, and world-renowned soil microbiologist Christine Jones, Ph.D., from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., June 26, at the Noble Pavilion.

Spend the morning taking a walk through the Noble cover crop plots, get your hands dirty in the soil and learn how what you see relates to soil biology and soil health. Following lunch, Jones will give a lecture on how enhancing above- and below-ground plant diversity to maximize the power of photosynthesis creates a robust soil microbiome, reducing reliance on additional fertilizers and herbicides; improving soil structure and function; and optimizing soil, plant, animal and human health, water quality, and farm profit.

USDA Conservation Reserve Program Enrollment Deadline
Aug
17
5:00 PM17:00

USDA Conservation Reserve Program Enrollment Deadline

As part of a 33-year effort to protect sensitive lands and improve water quality and wildlife habitat on private lands, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will resume accepting applications for the voluntary Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Eligible farmers, ranchers, and private landowners can sign up at their local Farm Service Agency (FSA) office between June 4 and Aug. 17, 2018.

“The Conservation Reserve Program is an important component of the suite of voluntary conservation programs USDA makes available to agricultural producers, benefiting both the land and wildlife. On the road, I often hear firsthand how popular CRP is for our recreational sector; hunters, fishermen, conservationists and bird watchers,” U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue said. “CRP also is a powerful tool to encourage agricultural producers to set aside unproductive, marginal lands that should not be farmed to reduce soil erosion, improve water quality, provide habitat for wildlife and boost soil health.”

FSA stopped accepting applications last fall for the CRP continuous signup (excluding applications for the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) and CRP grasslands). This pause allowed USDA to review available acres and avoid exceeding the 24 million-acre CRP cap set by the 2014 Farm Bill. New limited practice availability and short sign up period helps ensure that landowners with the most sensitive acreage will enroll in the program and avoid unintended competition with new and beginning farmers seeking leases. CRP enrollment currently is about 22.7 million acres.

2018 Signup for CRP
For this year’s signup, limited priority practices are available for continuous enrollment. They include grassed waterways, filter strips, riparian buffers, wetland restoration and others. View a full list of practices.

FSA will use updated soil rental rates to make annual rental payments, reflecting current values. It will not offer incentive payments as part of the new signup.

USDA will not open a general signup this year, however, a one-year extension will be offered to existing CRP participants with expiring CRP contracts of 14 years or less. Producers eligible for an extension will receive a letter with more information.

CRP Grasslands
Additionally, FSA established new ranking criteria for CRP Grasslands. To guarantee all CRP grasslands offers are treated equally, applicants who previously applied will be asked to reapply using the new ranking criteria. Producers with pending applications will receive a letter providing the options.

About CRP
In return for enrolling land in CRP, USDA, through FSA on behalf of the Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC), provides participants with annual rental payments and cost-share assistance. Landowners enter into contracts that last between 10 and 15 years. CRP pays producers who remove sensitive lands from production and plant certain grasses, shrubs and trees that improve water quality, prevent soil erosion and increase wildlife habitat.

Signed into law by President Reagan in 1985, CRP is one of the largest private-lands conservation programs in the United States. Thanks to voluntary participation by farmers, ranchers and private landowners, CRP has improved water quality, reduced soil erosion and increased habitat for endangered and threatened species.

The new changes to CRP do not impact the Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program, a related program offered by CCC and state partners.

Producers wanting to apply for the CRP continuous signup or CRP grasslands should contact their USDA service center. To locate your local FSA office, visit https://www.farmers.gov. More information on CRP can be found at www.fsa.usda.gov/crp.

Leopold Conservation Award Application Deadline

1:00 PM13:00

Leopold Conservation Award Application Deadline

2018 Call for Applications

If you, or someone you know, is a Oklahoma landowner who is committed to land management practices that increase conservation, we invite your application for the Leopold Conservation Award.

Presented by Sand County Foundation in partnership with Oklahoma Farming and
Ranching Foundation, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, Noble Research Institute
and  ITC Holdings

More information.

Leopold Conservation Award
In his influential book, A Sand County Almanac, Aldo Leopold called for an ethical relationship between people and the land they own and manage.   e development of a land ethic was, he wrote, “an evolutionary possibility and an ecological necessity.” A land ethic is alive and well today in the thousands of American farmers, ranchers, and foresters
who do well by their land and do well for their land.

Sand County Foundation proudly presents its Leopold Conservation Award to a private landowner who exemplies the spirit of this emerging land ethic — an individual or a
family who translates their deep abiding love for the land into responsible stewardship and management. In Oklahoma, Sand County Foundation presents the Leopold Conservation Award in partnership with the Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation, Oklahoma Cattlemen’s Association, Noble Research Institute and ITC Holdings.   e Leopold Conservation Award recipient receives an Aldo Leopold crystal and $10,000.

Leopold Conservation Awards recognize extraordinary achievement in voluntary conservation, inspire other landowners through their example, and help the general
public understand the vital role private landowners can and do play in conservation success.

Western Oklahoma Wildfire Initiative Signup Deadline
Jun

5:00 PM17:00

Western Oklahoma Wildfire Initiative Signup Deadline

USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Oklahoma has opened a round of sign-ups for participation in the Western Oklahoma Wildfire Initiative. By providing technical and financial assistance for conservation practices, this allows landowners to improve grazing land that has been effected by the recent wildfires.

Western Oklahoma Wildfire Initiative is available in Custer, Dewey, Ellis, Harmon, Harper, Roger Mills and Woodward Counties. Those interested in participating should apply at their local USDA Service Center by June 1, 2018.

“Conservation planning will identify requirements needed to address recovery of lost watering sources, loss and/or protection of grasses for grazing animals, protection of sensitive areas from erosion, and other identified needs,” said Gary O’Neill, NRCS Oklahoma State Conservationist.

NRCS has seen the devastating effects of these wildfires on agricultural operations and wants producers in these communities to know that NRCS is here for financial and technical assistance.

The funding will be made available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers to help plan and implement conservation practices that address priority local and state resource concerns.

NSSC Webinar: Digital Soil Mapping Focus Team

The digital soil mapping focus team will describe their charge and how it
relates to the mission of the Soil Science Division. The objective of this focus
team is to coordinate digital soil mapping across the Division, and develop soil
information products that are complete across the USA and Territories and
serve a wide array of users. This will involve development and delivery of
continuous soil property data by depth intervals, which is new to NCSS, but in
high demand by many users. This will be an opportunity to expand our
mapping methods and product delivery. Application of digital soil mapping in
support of initial and update projects will also be cultivated. The team will
focus on tools to supplement our investigation of the pedosphere and provide
additional resources to better understand and represent our knowledge of the
soil resource to users.
