MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — The Natural Resources Conservation Service is inviting West Virginia farmers and producers to attend local forums on crop and soil health.

Officials say five sites throughout the state will host farmers, producers and select partner agencies to participate in National Cover Crops and Soil Health Conference via internet streaming on Tuesday.

The national conference will take place in Omaha, Nebraska. Attendees will listen to the national forum and then participate in a local discussion at one of the five sites.

The sites are located in Lewisburg, Martinsburg, Morgantown, Moorefield and Point Pleasant.

Since 2009, the Natural Resources Conservation Service has provided more than $315,000 in financial assistance for cover crops for 3,965 acres across the state.
