EQIP Signup Announced
Natural Resources Conservation Service urges farmers to watch for conservation needs during harvest and reveals EQIP applications submitted by Nov. 15 will receive first priority for funding.
NRCS employs professional conservationists who, together with the farmer, evaluate how the land may benefit from conservation treatment.
Dot Harris, Ohio's Assistant State Conservationist for Programs, manages the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. Harris says EQIP can help with the cost of trying a new conservation practice like cover crops. "With a conservation plan in hand, the farmer applies for EQIP to pay for conservation practices like cover crops, drainage water management, rotational grazing, and much more. The financial assistance pays a part of the cost of trying these things, which may be just what's needed to make trying something new worthwhile."
Agricultural producers interested in applying for EQIP and conservation planning assistance should contact their local NRCS office. The Ohio NRCS website at http://www.oh.nrcs.usda.gov has a listing of telephone numbers and addresses by county.
