5/18/2013 7:00 AM

HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts Inc. has released “Conservation Districts Sustain Agriculture: A Farmer’s Story,” an outreach tool that highlights the type of work districts conduct.

“This video, while short in length, is long in reach and explains how the districts help sustain the state’s No. 1 industry: agriculture,” said Robert Maiden, PACD executive director.

“Many times, it is the conservation districts assisting farmers with their nutrient management plans and installation of best management practices (BMPs) so they can keep feeding families,” he said. “Agriculture feeds families.”

The video can by viewed at http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=oQl9fLSZ0mM.

PACD is specifically asking the Legislature to take a second look at the proposed 2013-14 state budget and restore the conservation district line items.
