Upcoming NRCS Training Crops 101 Dates

Thursday, January 26, 2017

NRCS is in the process of releasing their FY 17 Training Plan.  There are some courses that are part of the MAEAP grant award training levels.


Crops 101 Conservation Tillage - March 9 - MSUE Crop and Soils HQ

Crops 101 Wind Erosion (WEPS) - March 21 - NRCS State Office, Conference Room B

Crops 101 Water Erosion (RUSLE2) - March 23 - NRCS State Office, Conference Room B


If you are not already signed up for the classes, Conservation District staff should sign up in Ag Learn or contact Mike Stermock at Mike.Stermock@mi.usda.gov and CC Jerry.Grigar@mi.usda.gov.  That way he knows how many are coming and can prepare enough notebooks for everyone that attends. 


I spoke with Mike and he can work with people that do not yet have NRCS computer access to attend the class and then later have it added to your AgLearn record.
