Nebraska Conservation Partnership for the Panhandle

The Partnership is evolving and is committed to help arm producers with educational support, knowledge and practical use techniques for improving soil health, encouraging water conservation and minimizing tillage cropping practices. We hope to help instill a long-term vision and keen awareness of the need for continued education to successfully endure as producers.

We offer hands-on, informational events and educational information for producers interested in sustaining agriculture within the parameters of Conservation Agriculture.
With this knowledge and effort we remain committed to our vision and will continue to promote all aspects of Conservation.
