Minnesota conservation program deadline set for Nov. 19

For Minnesota farmers interested in enrolling in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, the deadline for initial paperwork is set for Nov. 19.

“EQIP is a great opportunity for farmers looking to incorporate conservation in their operations,” said Kate Hansen, policy associate at Center for Rural Affairs.

Administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, EQIP provides financial and technical assistance for producers to address natural resource concerns with conservation practices and simultaneously maintain agricultural production on their land.

Those interested in applying should call their local NRCS office for an appointment. A list of offices appears at offices.sc.egov.usda.gov.
