The Charles SCD hosted the 2011 Charles County Ag Tour on March 24. The educational tour was enjoyed by over 20 attendees from the local agricultural community.
The tour visited the farms of the Hancock Brothers, Brent Garner, Francis and Kevin Warring, and David Spaulding. The event covered programs offered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Md. Agricultural Water Quality Cost-Share Program (MACS) , and Charles SCD including several best management practices (BMP's) installed with the assistance of Charles SCD and these cost-share programs. Also highlighted was the ag equipment rental program.
The tour was a great success and Charles SCD plans to hold tours covering other subjects of interest. Feel free to let us know if there is a particular agricultural subject you would like to see highlighted on a future tour.
