Ag Outlook Seminars & EPA Grants

Ag Outlook Seminars & EPA Grants

Ag Outlook Seminars & EPA Grants. I'm Greg Martin with today's Northwest Report.

Farmers and agriculture-related business people can get a sense of what the next year may bring during Idaho Ag Outlook Seminars offered by University of Idaho Extension. Ben Eborn with the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences talks about the seminars.

LOFTUS: It seems like nowadays, in the last five to ten years, market conditions have become much more volatile for commodities, prices and input prices and we think that if we offer these seminars we can hopefully get producers and lenders a better perspective on what the potential outcomes could bebe for the coming year so they can plan ahead and hopefully be a little nit more profitable.

EPA has awarded three environmental education grants totaling $272,992 to non-profit organizations in Idaho, Oregon and Washington. These three projects were selected from a pool 48 grant applications submitted to EPA Region 10. The Children's Forest of Central Oregon, located in Bend, Oregon received $90,992 for the Deschutes Watershed Student Stewardship Projects. The Regents of the University of Idaho, located in Moscow, Idaho received $91,000 for the 2015 Confluence Project. The Pacific Education Institute, located in Olympia, Washington received $91,000 for Students Engaged in Conserving the Columbia River Watershed.

That's today's Northwest Report. I'm Greg Martin on the Ag Information Network of the West.
