This webinar will feature two successful water quality projects supported by the Conservation Innovation Grants (CIG) program. The CIG program was established to stimulate the development and adoption of innovative conservation approaches and technologies for U.S. producers on farms, ranches, and forest land. CIG projects lead to the transfer of conservation technologies, management systems, and innovative approaches to agriculture producers and the private sector. In addition, the projects often help NRCS with updating or changing manuals and guides, and modernizing conservation standards. In general, the program will fund pilot projects, demonstrations and research. Presenters will describe their projects, the lessons learned about the various technologies demonstrated, and provide suggestions for how NRCS can use the information learned to assist livestock producers with water quality issues.
