Farming for over 20 years, Donavon took an early interest in Conservation practices and associated cost-sharing through the NRCS. Tools that help keep an eye on inputs while maintaining efficient production have been used over the years. His farm is a participant in the National Association of Conservation District's Soil Health Champion network. Involvement with Louisiana and National Conservation efforts has presented many learning opportunities to improve the quality of the farm. The inconsistencies revealed by one of his first Drone flights over a corn field showed the value of this approach to management.
