Klobuchar Announces Farm Priorities In Ankeny
Klobuchar also ties her ag plans into climate change, calling for more conservation practices on farmland. She wants to build upon existing state and federal incentives such as the Conservation Reserve Program, Conservation Stewardship Program and Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
“We can do more to improve soil carbon sequestration, which both improves soil health and reduces carbon levels,” she said. “We started with a pilot program, by the way, in the Farm Bill on this and it’s kind of exciting what we can do to make this part of our conservation efforts.”
