CMP Workshops – Tulare/Kings Counties Scheduled for Next Tuesday (2/25)

Next week, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District will be hosting two free workshops to assist farmers and farming operations in updating their Conservation Management Plans (CMP’s).  The first workshop of the day will begin 10 a.m. located at the Tulare County Ag Commissioner’s Office at 4437 S. Laspina in Tulare.  The second workshop on Tuesday begins at 1:30 p.m. and will be located at the Kings County Fairgrounds, 801 S. 10th Avenue in Hanford.
CMP’s are required for all farming operations that are over 100 acres, and the plan requires updating in specific situations.  Some of those situations include if you purchase land after your original CMP was developed, if you change crop types, or if you have changed CMP practices at your operation.  The Association along with several other agricultural organizations is partnering with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District to host several CMP Workshops throughout the San Joaquin Valley including at least one workshop in every county.  The workshops will occur as per the following schedule:
