Many landowners are familiar with EQIP, the Environmental Quality Incentives Program. It provides financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers to address natural resource concerns and deliver a variety of environmental benefits. According to NRCS Associate Chief, Kevin Norton, EQIP is the workhorse of conservation.

Norton told Southeast AgNet that programs through EQIP are not just about traditional crop production.
