MONROE - The U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service announced that farmers interested in new farmland conservation practices must apply by Friday, Jan. 18 to be considered for 2013 funding. The Environmental Quality Incentives program is the primary program available to farmers for farmland conservation work, offering flat-rate payments for more than 80 conservation practices. "EQIP can help all types of farmers - livestock and dairy, grazing, or cash crop, including specialty crops, organic, and agro-forestry," said Jason Thomas, district conservationist for Green County.
