Soil and Water Conservation Cost-Share Signups Underway

Soil and Water Conservation districts across Missouri are in the midst of their sign-up period for a series of cost-share programs.  One deadline is coming up for Randolph County farmers interested in funds to support projects combatting sheet and rill or gully erosion.  District Manager Rayanna Hopper says the deadline is January 31st and explains what the program covers.

Hopper explains how applications will be ranked.

Hopper says applicants for the Sheet and Rill/Gully Erosion cost-share program will learn their score sometime in February, with qualifying farmers receiving funds when the next fiscal year starts in July.  Applications and additional details are available through the Randolph County Soil and Water Conservation District at the USDA Service Center in Moberly.
