Conservation practices to improve soil health and protect natural resources
Tuesday, October 29, 2013 7:02 AM

Due to the recent government shutdown and 16-day closure of USDA Service Centers, USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has extended the signup deadline for their most popular program.   Farmers interested in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) now have until Dec. 20 to apply for 2014 funding.  Applications are being taken at all USDA Service Centers in Wisconsin.  EQIP is the primary program available to farmers for farmland conservation work, offering payments for over 90 basic conservation practices.  “EQIP – the Environmental Quality Incentives Program -  is still authorized through a continuation of the old 2008 Farm Bill,” said Michelle Komiskey, District Conservationist for the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in  Westfield.    “Our office is now open and we are working on the backlog of requests as quickly as possible.”
