Cover Crop Cost Share

Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District Cost Share Opportunity
To promote the use of cover crops, the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District is again providing funding for the Cover Crop Cost-Share Program to assist producers in planting cover crops to decrease erosion and improve water quality.

Soil & Water will be accepting applications until July 3, 2020.   Applications are evaluated individually with fields being scored based on several criteria.  Fields that score high enough are approved for cost-share funding at a rate of $12/approved acre.  If a producer and field are new to the Program, the cost-share rate is $15/approved acre.  There is a cap of 200 approved acres per producer.

The application and additional details can be found here:
