Farm bill supports water quality effortsWritten by Admin
If you are farming in Haywood County, the USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service is accepting applications to support efforts that improve water quality.
Cost-share is available for practices include watering tanks, fencing, streambank stabilization, pastureland improvement, sediment control on agriculture lands, agri-chemical buildings, forest stand improvement and more. A percentage for actual costs of installation of projects will be paid through this farm bill program.
Interested farmers should stop by the USDA office at 589 Raccoon Road, Suite 203, in Waynesville by Oct. 14 to submit an application.
