Water quality funds still available
Funds are still available through the Water Quality Initiative for cover crops, no-till/strip till, or using a nitrification inhibitor. Funds are available to producers who have never tried these practices. There is a cost share rate for planting cover crops, no-till/strip till and using a nitrapyrin nitrification inhibitor when applying fall fertilizer. Acres are limited to 160 per producer.
To apply for funding, inquire about cost share or other questions, contact the Washington County SWCD office at 1621 E. Washington St. in Washington or call 319-653-6654.
