The Iowa Farm Service Agency has announced a program to help protect clean water sources. State FSA Executive Director John Whitaker says the Farmable Wetlands Program is a volunteer program that will work to restore wetlands, control soil erosion, and enhance wildlife habitats. Whitaker says there are added incentives for producers to take part in the program, including a 100-dollar bonus per acre and a 120 percent rental rate. Interested producers should contact their local FSA office.
