Landowners/operators may sign up for assistance for a wide range of practices including, but not limited to:

Grassed waterways
Alternative watering systems
Cover crops
Stream crossings
Heavy use areas
Cross & exclusion fencing
Riparian buffer strips
Grade stabilization structures
Nutrient management
Forestry management plans
Streambank stabilization

Without prOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAoper erosion and sedimentation control, soils can be lost from croplands and reduce future productivity.  Soils carried from fields in runoffs can also degrade streams and other receiving waters.  Approved applications will receive 75-85% assistance for the installation of conservation smart practices!
