(This amendment provides $1.7 million in both years for additional funding to the Cooperative Extension to provide stable funding to hire and retain skilled employees to address market competitiveness, to facilitate their outreach regarding nutrient reduction and water quality practices to Virginian farmers. This proposal was the result of a 2017 study completed by the Chesapeake Bay Commission, Boots on the Ground: Improving Technical Assistance to Farmers.)
