WVSU Extension Service to Discuss Landowner Assistance Programs at Ag Talk Tuesday January 11
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service’s monthly Ag Talk Tuesday series continues Tuesday, January 11, at 7 p.m. EST with a discussion of Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) landowner assistance programs.

WVSU Extension Service will be joined by Mitchell King, acting district conservationist for the Capitol District, who will give background information on cost share programs offered by the NRCS and the Capitol Conservation District to landowners/producers, with a focus on invasive species control.

King will also give instruction on how to sign up for these programs and give a general timeline for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, including deadlines. The Farm Service Agency will also talk about how to obtain a Farm and Tract number.

The free Ag Talk Tuesday series began in July 2020 and takes place the second Tuesday of each month. Participants register to join the live event and can submit questions ahead of time through the WVSU Extension Service Facebook and Twitter platforms or via email.
To participate in the Zoom sessions, register at wvstateu.edu/ANR. Registering once provides access to the full schedule of sessions.

While live questions will be answered during each session, participants are also encouraged to submit questions, as well as ideas for future topics, ahead of time to extension@wvstateu.edu.
