NRCS is helping private landowners manage existing cropland, forestland and pasture to meet wildlife habitat needs and establish new wildlife habitat areas.
A new report from USDA shows farmers have significantly reduced the loss of sediment and nutrients through conservation work in the Chesapeake Bay watershed sending cleaner water downstream.
NRCS in Maryland has set the first application cutoff date for December 20. Producers are encouraged to sign up now for the EQIP, WHIP or AMA program for financial and technical assistance to address varying natural resource priorities.
Maryland farmers and forestland owners are voluntarily installing conservation practices on thousands of acres annually to help support rural economies, protect wildlife habitat and improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.
EQIP promotes agricultural production, forest management and environmental quality as compatible goals. CBWI encourages long-term conservation to improve water quality in the Chesapeake Bay.
