Hendry and Glades Soil and Water Conservation Districts held a local work group meeting on August 13.
Attending the meeting were representatives from Florida Department of Agriculture, Farm Services Agency, USDA/Natural Resources Conservation Service, as well as Hendry and Glades District Board members. This meeting was open to the public. The purpose of the meeting was to gather ideas and recommendations for criteria to be used in cost share for the EQIP program.
One of the main concerns of all who were in attendance was the issue of invasive species such as smutgrass and Brazilian pepper and the best methods to eradicate them.
