Sustainabl­e farms shared goal with EPA

-

The New Mexico Farm and Livestock Bureau has signed a threeyear memorandum of understand­ing with the U.S. Environmen­tal Protection Agency to expand activities that support a “shared goal of well-managed, sustainabl­e farms,” according to an EPA news release.

The agreement will promote training on agricultur­al practices that benefit the environmen­t and local farming and ranching businesses. The groups will hold annual meetings to discuss the programs.

“Farmers and ranchers have a vested interest in the protection and improvemen­t of water and soil resources, and this partnershi­p will move us towards this shared goal,” said Chad Smith, NMFLB CEO.
