Promoting EQIP in Georgia

Dan Conservation, Environment, Georgia, USDA-NRCS


USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) in Georgia wants to remind producers and landowners across the state that technical or financial assistance can be applied for year-round through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). Through EQIP, agricultural producers receive assistance to implement structural and management conservation practices that optimize environmental benefits on working agricultural land.

Georgia State Conservationist Terrance O. Rudolph says EQIP covers all aspects of agriculture.

Rudolph notes that EQIP is one of the most utilized tools in their conservation toolbox, helping their customers achieve their economic and environmental goals.


Assistance is available to help producers and landowners plan and implement conservation practices to provide environmental benefits on cropland, pasture, forestland, and associated agricultural land, including animal feeding operations. As a result, EQIP helps to improve water quantity and quality, build healthier soil, improve grazing and forest lands, conserve energy, enhance organic operations, as well as establish or improve wildlife habitat.
