The Wilson County Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office reminds certified organic producers and those transitioning to organic production that the deadline for this funding cycle ends on Friday, May 20.

Funding assistance is available this year through Environmental Quality Incentives Program Organic Initiative to help producers plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns in ways that are consistent with organic production. For example, conservation practices include planting cover crops, crop rotations, prescribed grazing, forage harvest management, establishing integrated pest management plans, or implementing nutrient management systems consistent with organic certification standards.

Applications are taken continuously throughout the year, but producers need to have an application signed and returned to their local conservation office by May 20 to be considered in this ranking period for funding. Applications received after this date will be ranked in the next funding group, which could be later this year in fiscal year 2012.

For more information about conservation planning and technical assistance, visit the Wilson County conservation service at 1106 Tenth St. (U.S. 181) in Floresville, call 830-393-3555, ext. 3, or visit www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov/programs/eqip and click on Texas 2011 EQIP information.
