TOLLAND, CT -- With spring potentially right around the corner, the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service wants farmers and forestland owners to know that now is the perfect time to sign up for its conservation programs, including:

• The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), which helps eligible producers and private forest landowners with agricultural production, forest management, and environmental quality. Through EQIP, agricultural producers receive financial and technical assistance to implement structural and management conservation practices that optimize environmental benefits on working agricultural land.

• The Agricultural Management Assistance (AMA) Program, which provides cost share assistance to eligible producers to address issues such as water management, water quality, and erosion control by incorporating conservation into farming operations.

• The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), which helps eligible producers build on existing conservation efforts including improving grazing conditions, increasing crop yields, or developing wildlife habitat.

Although no batching dates have been announced, NRCS is accepting applications for Fiscal Year 2020 funded through the 2018 Farm Bill.
