NRCS announces funding for organic initiative
USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is taking applications for a 2011 nationwide Organic Initiative to encourage more organic agriculture production. Funding for the initiative is being made available as part of the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP).
