Clermont SWCD would like to announce the roll-out of the Southwest Ohio Agricultural Conservation Menu (SOACM) website – www.soacm.com. Collaborating with surrounding soil and water conservation districts and other agencies, a website has been created as a “one stop shop” for your conservation program needs.
The SOACM was designed to help local producers and landowners find information, technical assistance and programs related to conservation practices. The SOACM website also includes a Farmer Forum where farmers can post questions, share information and discuss local issues. Information on soil health, watershed health and local water quality monitoring data is also available to provide citizens with updated information related to the health of our local streams and lakes.
Agriculture and nutrients have been hot topics in the news lately, with large amounts of funding from the Ohio governor’s office to help address the nutrient issues occurring in our state. This website helps consolidate all the conservation programs available to the farmer, including information on federal, state and local funding sources and technical assistance.
This project was funded through the Ohio Environmental Education Fund administered through the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. Please visit the SOACM site and visit often as we continually update.
