USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia reminds producers and landowners in the state that they are holding a targeted signup to support climate-smart agriculture and forestry through voluntary conservation practices. But, the deadline to sign up for this assistance is Thursday, July 15.
Terrance O. Rudolph, state conservationist for NRCS in Georgia said, “We will use this EQIP signup to deliver support for implementing critical climate-smart conservation practices to our producers. By working with our partner groups across the state, we are striving to ensure funds are equitably distributed, including to our historically underserved producers.”
This pilot approach through NRCS will provide producers and landowners with financial assistance and one-on-one technical support to plan and implement voluntary conservation practices. The outcomes will be a benefit for producers and the environment, with producers conserving natural resources and delivering environmental benefits while building resiliency to strengthen their working land.
