Iowa farmers have submitted applications for $2.8 million in cost share funding to help implement new nutrient reduction practices on their farms, announced Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey. According to the Washington Soil and Water Conservation District, Washington County has $93,000 in cost share funds obligated for these practices. The funds were available to help farmers try new practices to protect water quality in the state. Farmers are encouraged to still reach out to their local Soil and Water Conservation District office as there may be other programs available to help them implement these voluntary, science-based water quality practices on their farm.
