Lincoln County Conservation District initiated a seminar series titled ?Conservation District Workshop? last March with a field tour and presentation on Soil Health at Flatnose Ranch and Lincoln County High School. About 20 people heard from Natural Resources Conservation Service soil and vegetation scientists and participated in interesting discussions.
As part of the ongoing plan of alternating Workshops between Lincoln and Pahranagat Valley High Schools, Lincoln County Conservation District announces the next Conservation District Workshop will occur Thursday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m. in the lunch room at Pahranagat Valley High School following the CD Annual Dinner.
TJ Bingham, Crop Consultant for Stanislaus Farm Supply, will explain the different salts in our soil, why salts hurt crop yield and plant growth, things we can do to fix salty soil and things to do to reduce the amount of salt build up in our soil. Bingham will talk about where salts are coming from and what can be done to still produce good crops in salty soil. He received a Bachelor of Science in Horticulture and MS degree in Crop Science from Utah State University.
As always, the Conservation District is interested to know your ideas for future topics and speakers. Workshops are geared to adults; however FFA students are encouraged to attend and we will alternate meeting at Pahranagat Valley and Lincoln County High Schools. The Conservation District hopes the Workshop series will provide education and a chance for those interested in agriculture and natural resources in Lincoln County to mingle and exchange ideas. Conservation Districts are locally elected and work to get incentive-based conservation on the ground in their local areas.
