MN EQIP Sign-up by August 19th
July 6, 2016
Agricultural producers looking to solve natural resource problems on their farms will want to plan ahead and sign-up early for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) funding. Farmers interested in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) need to apply by August 19, 2016, for funding in 2017.
EQIP is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers. These contracts provide financial assistance to help plan and implement conservation practices that address natural resource concerns and for opportunities to improve soil, water, plant, animal, air, and related resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forestland.
