DCR-sponsored research confirmed it: Farmers prefer getting their conservation information from trusted sources, face-to-face. For example, farmers said they’d like to see districts partner with Extension more often. Farmers’ top media preferences include the county paper and district newsletters.
To help you with face-to-face selling, newsletter stories and news releases for local media, we have developed a “leave-behind” fact sheet, white paper and news release template for each priority practice. You’ll find valuable background information in those documents.
