ELIZABETHTOWN — Cost Share assistance is available to landowners and tenants in North Carolina to help fund the cost of installing conservation practices to improve the state’s water quality.
These measures include such things as no-till incentive payments, cover crops, cropland conversions (grass, trees, wildlife), grassed waterways, field borders, animal waste management systems, livestock fencing from critical areas, poultry litter storage facilities, mortality incinerators, water control structures, and many more.
The funds, available through the North Carolina Agriculture Cost Share Program, are intended to help reduce the input of sediments, nutrients, animal waste and pesticides into the state’s waterways by providing financial and technical assistance to landowners and tenants to apply Conservation Best Management Practices.
For information on applying for these funds, call the Bladen County Soil Conservation Office at 862-3179, Ext. 3.
