When working with your local Farm Service Agency office to transfer land ownership, change operators or your corporation, LLC or partnership, don’t forget to stop by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office, or your contract payments may be in jeopardy.
Financial assistance for implementing conservation practices through NRCS remains available for certified organic farmers or those transitioning to organic agriculture.
Financial and conservation planning assistance are available through local USDA Service Centers for Iowa farmers and landowners interested in adding wildlife habitat on their land. The next cutoff deadline to fund applications is March 17.
For the first time, Iowa’s private landowners have the opportunity to implement selected resource conserving practices on their land using a higher than normal payment rate through USDA’s Environment Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
