USDA, NRCS establish soil health initiative in Mississippi
The United States Department of Agriculture / Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), has established a statewide Soil Health Initiative that focuses on building soil health and productivity. Mississippi croplands, forestlands, and pasturelands are eligible for this initiative. Applications received by March 17, 2017 will be considered in the first ranking period.
This Soil Health Initiative will assist to improve the visibility, accessibility and participation in soil health programs and technical services under the Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP). EQIP programs help to reduce the carbon footprint, increase water infiltration and improve wildlife habitat, all while helping farmers realize better crop yields.
