CRP and Forestry, Online, 2016
Get an in-depth look at Farm Service Agency's CRP practices that incorporate forestry into CRP. This intermediate-level course highlights Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) conservation practices, job sheets and materials used to establish and maintain forests, windbreaks and riparian forest buffers. It also features a discussion on prescribed burning, windbreak design, and information on forestry Best Management Practices (BMPs) and invasive species.
It should take about 4 to 6 hours to complete the mix of reading activities, videos and comprehension quizzes. Those who complete this course will receive 5.5 CCA CEU’S (2.5 Crop Management, 2.5 Soil and Water Management and 0.5 Integrated Pest Management). Those finding this course particularly helpful would be working with landowners on conservation planning, ecosystem management and riparian buffers, environmental management systems record keeping, farmstead and resource assessment and forestry.
This course was previously known as CRP and Forestry when it was offered as part of the CRPRI Initiative.
