In this episode of the No-Till Farmer podcast, brought to you by Yetter Manufacturing, Lessiter Media president Mike Lessiter sits down for an exclusive one-on-one talk with the newly appointed 16th chief of the NRCS, Matthew Lohr.
A 5th generation farmer, Lohr has spent many years working for the betterment of agriculture and stewardship on working lands. He has served as Virginia’s Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services, in the Virginia House of Delegates, and at Farm Credit of the Virginias.
As a no-tiller who grows cover crops, Lohr is uniquely positioned to help spread understanding and adoption of conservation farming practices across the country. In this podcast, he talks about how his farming background has shown him the financial and environmental benefits of focusing on soil health through no-tilling and cover crops and how this will impact his leadership priorities as the NRCS heads into its 85th year.
