Conservation deadline nears
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Natural Resources Conservation Service reminds agriculture producers that the second ranking period cut-off date for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program is Friday, April 19.
Producers interested in the program should submit applications to the Wilson County Natural Resources Conservation Service office by the deadline so their applications can be considered during the second ranking period of 2013.
The Environmental Quality Incentives Program -- one of the largest programs in the Farm Bill -- is a voluntary conservation program that promotes environmental quality and assists producers to meet local, state, and federal regulations. This program is a continuous sign-up program that allows landowners or operators to apply for financial and technical assistance for the application of specific conservation practices.
Higher priority will be given to those applications that address national, state, and local priorities and provide higher cost efficiency.
For more information, including eligibility requirements, call the USDA Service Center office in Floresville, at 830-393-3555, ext. 3, or visit www.tx.nrcs.usda.gov.
