An informational conference highlighting the new Funding Agricultural Replacement Measures for Emission Reductions (FARMER) program will be held next Monday, October 22, at 10 a.m. at Bruno’s Iron and Metal located at 3211 S. Golden State Blvd., in Fresno.

Federal, state and local officials will showcase how $108 million from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) is helping fund the FARMER incentive program in the San Joaquin Valley and assisting farmers in replacing older tractors and ag equipment with cleaner, low-emission technology.

The funding assists growers and agricultural processing facilities to replace tractors, trucks and ATVs.

FARMER funding comes from the California Climate Investments that takes Cap 7 Trade dollars to work in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
