USDA to help fund organic conservation efforts

ConservationThe U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has announced it will assist organic farmers with the cost of establishing up to 20,000 acres of new conservation buffers and other practices on and near organic farms. The financial assistance is available through USDA’s Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), providing participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Funds for conservation buffers are available for establishing shrubs and trees, or supporting pollinating species, and can be planted in blocks or strips. More details are available through USDA’s Farm Service Agency.
