Annual Tree Sale

        The Ottawa Soil & Water Conservation District is conducting its 2019 Seedling Tree and Shrub Sale.

        Evergreen varieties are sold in packets of 10 and include Colorado Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, American Arborvitae and Bald Cypress. Fast-growing Green Rocket Cedar will also be sold individually. These cedars will grow up to 3 feet per year, are deer resistant, have a strong root system, and no major insect problems. They make ideal windbreak or privacy screen.

Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act included in Farm Bill

        The Precision Agriculture Connectivity Act, legislation authored by Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) has been included in Farm Bill legislation agreed to by a Conference Committee.

        The legislation was included in the House-passed Farm Bill, H.R. 2, earlier this year. The Conference Committee was created to negotiate and iron out the differences in the Farm Bills passed by the House and Senate.
