The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) is a voluntary
conservation program supporting agriculture, forestry, and
environmental quality as compatible goals. Through EQIP, farmers and
foresters may receive financial and technical help with conservation
practices on agricultural land. EQIP in New Hampshire offers financial
assistance for estimated costs incurred for conservation practices.
Payments may also be made to encourage a farmer to adopt land
management practices, such as nutrient management, manure
management, integrated pest management, or wildlife habitat
management. Farm and forestry activities in New Hampshire are good
for our state, our health, and our economy. When properly planned and
managed, they are also good for our natural resources.
