The recommendations contained in this report are offered to assist you in the upcoming debate on agricultural conservation, which will be a key part of the 2007 Farm Bill reauthorization. Over 40 listening sessions, involving more than a thousand individuals and statkeholder organizations in the Chesapeake Bay six-state watershed, were held in the spring and summer of 2005. We transmit the ideas formed from those discussion as a starting point for further dialogue and refinement as you work to develop the content of the 2007 Farm Bail. We believe the extensive farmlands of the Chesapeake Bay region, draining into the largest estuary in the Chesapeake have application to the multitude of other fragile and recovering watersheds in the nation.
