State Conservationist Reminds Landowners of Environmental Quality Incentive Program Deadline

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 14:28:18 CST

State Conservationist Reminds Landowners of Environmental Quality Incentive Program Deadline Applications for participation in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) are due Nov. 18, 2016. USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist for Oklahoma, Gary O’Neill, reminds eligible landowners and agricultural producers to submit inquiries and applications to their local USDA Field Service Center by this Friday to be considered for the current sign-up round.

“EQIP is an excellent opportunity for farmers and ranchers to begin or continue tackling the natural resource issues they have on their land,” said O’Neill. “Voluntary conservation programs such as EQIP continue to demonstrate that agricultural producers are doing their part to improve soil health and air and water quality without regulation.”

EQIP provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers to plan and implement conservation practices that improve soil, water, air and related natural resources on agricultural land and non-industrial private forest land.

NRCS accepts and processes EQIP applications throughout the year. However, application deadlines are periodically set to consider eligible applications for funding. Applications submitted after Nov. 18, 2016 will be evaluated for funding during later funding opportunities. Producers must submit a complete program application, establish “farm records,” and provide other documentation to support eligibility to be considered for financial assistance through EQIP.

“Oklahoma farmers and ranchers have always been active in conservation. I encourage producers to get their applications in by this Friday and continue Oklahoma’s tradition of voluntary, local conservation,” said O’Neill.
