Bowling Green, Ohio – Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) and State Conservationist Terry Cosby of the United States Department of Agriculture toured Wood County farms to learn about various practices utilized to improve conservation and water management in farming.
The tour included stops at Brinker Farm in Bowling Green, a filter strip in Luckey, and the Swartz Farm in Perrysburg.
“The agricultural community plays a pivotal role in our community, and is a driving force in our economy. It was great for me to have the opportunity to get out and see the industry’s best practices first hand,” said Latta. “These farmers are doing impressive work conserving resources and focusing on implementing technologies to manage nutrient application, while working toward continued improvement of overall soil and water quality. I thank State Conservationist Cosby for joining me to tour these sites, and will continue to work with farmers, and officials at the local, state and federal levels to ensure the protection and conservation of our water resources.”
