USC Ag Team

 
Ag Team Updates

 

The USC acts as a resource agency to farmers, districts and other entities to share ideas, skills and funding opportunities that aid operations in reaching environmental goals. 

The USC Ag Team consists of SWCD technical staff from multiple counties working together to support and assist agricultural operations within the coalition.  Technical assistance includes documenting farm statistics and Best Management Practices (BMPs), developing watershed and site-specific agricultural plans, and implementing and evaluating practices. Technical assistance often begins with enrolling farms in the Agricultural Environmental Management (AEM) Program, which acts as a planning tool to identify

resource concerns within the farm operation.  As a voluntary program, AEM identifies appropriate management strategies and practices to address these resource concerns without negatively impacting the economic viability of the farm. The overall goal of management strategies within the coalition is to improve water quality within the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
