The Meeker Soil and Water Conservation District is offering cost share assistance to local farmers for planting cover crops this fall.
Cover crops reduce soil erosion and conserve soil moisture. They increase organic matter, improve soil health and reduce fertilizer costs.
Cost share assistance of up to $55 per acre is available now. For more information about the program or to apply for the cost share assistance, contact Joe Norman at the SWCD office, 320-693-7287, extension 3078.
