Description

The annual report of the Board of Supervisors of the Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District for 1970. The organization began in 1948 with a goal to assist in agricultural interests. Over the years, the Seminole Soil and Water Conservation District began to also concentrate on the development and management of recreational enterprises. Their interests also entailed inventory and evaluations for land uses and solving issues concerning soil and water resources. In this year's report, the board gives an annual review of the accomplishments of the past and a summation of the objectives for the next year. The report acknowledges contributions from the Seminole County Board of Commissioners and the assistance of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Florida State Forestry Service. The report also thanks the local office of the Farm Bureau and the local radio station, WTRR, for promoting conservation efforts. Additionally, the report discusses the introduction to the county of a new pasture grass called Haltgrass, or Hemarthria Altissima, furnished by the Plant Materials Center of the Soil Conservation Service it Brooksville, Florida. The report explains that the new grass is useful for grazing and haying. Finally, the report discusses the revamping of tile systems on vegetable land and includes statistical information for 1970 and an appropriation ledger for office supplies and expenses for 1969 and 1970.
