Implementing and Tracking Success of Agricultural Management Measures in Four Texas Watersheds

Project Goals/Objectives: The primary goal of the proposed project is to increase landowner adoption of best management practices through a cost-effective approach that aligns with changing landowner and producer demographics as well as the Covid-19 era. To achieve this goal, TWRI will develop and deliver educational materials directly to landowners through the mail, newspaper, radio, social media, and in person. The educational material will include concise and relevant information for landowners explaining why program participation is important and how to participate. We estimate that this project will repeatedly put best practice information directly in the hands of high priority landowners that may otherwise not receive information through just one method of outreach and education
