A U.S. Senator from South Dakota wants to see the conservation title of the next farm bill updated. John Thune says he’d like to see a “working lands approach.”
“We need to look for solutions that improve soil health and provide greater incentives for people to participate.”
He tells Brownfield program flexibility is important. Thune is a co-sponsor of the Conservation Reserve Program Improvement Act, a bipartisan bill addressing haying and grazing of CRP acres.
