CONSERVATION INNOVATION GRANTS: SUCCESSFUL GRAZING LANDS – INNOVATION TO IMPLEMENTATION
Webinar date/time: December 9, 2020; 1:30pm ET
Duration: 1.5 hours
What will you learn?
Join us as we discuss how a well-planned and executed Conservation Innovation Grant (CIG) on Grazing Lands demonstrated innovative techniques of establishing and grazing native warm season grasses for combined benefits to grazing livestock and ground nesting wildlife. See how the results have been transferred and integrated for use in NRCS to help more farmers to establish and utilize NWSG’s on their farms. During this webinar, we will discuss how CIG projects can be successfully planned and used to demonstrate innovative practice implementation, and the results can be transferred for widespread use and incorporated in technical specifications and program incentives in many states. Dr. Pat Keyser shares his CIG results and how the information was transferred and integrated into technical resources, training and outreach. JB Daniel, NRCS Grassland Agronomist in VA, will share how he utilized the results and incorporated it into simple technical recommendations, statewide training, WLFW Program promotion materials and ultimately conversion of cool-season pastures to native warm season grasses for grazing livestock and ground nesting wildlife. VA Grazier, Keith Tuck, will give a producer testimonial on how he used the technical recommendations and the WLFW Program to successfully convert pasture and establish native warm season grasses on his grazing operation
