Faribault Co SWCD Reminds Landowners They Can Request Assistance for Implementation of Conservation Practices

Faribault County Soil and Water Conservation District would like landowners to know that they can request financial and technical assistance for the implementation of approved conservation practices that protect and improve water quality.  Program Administrator Nate Carr says two of those practices are cover crops and strip till.

The program will provide up to 75% or a flat rate of the total eligible costs of those practices.  The SWCD Board of Supervisors approves or denies all cost share contract requests.  A contract between the SWCD and landowner needs to be approved before the project can begin and landowners are reimbursed upon completion of the project.
