The Yadkin County Soil and Water Conservation District will be receiving its annual cost share allocation from the state for projects addressing non-point source pollution from agriculture activities.
These funds are available to assist farmers with the installation of conservation practices that help decrease the amount of sediment, nitrogen, phosphorus, chemicals, and other pollutants in the surface and ground waters of the state.
Farm owners and operators may apply for cost share assistance to install conservation practices and best management practices, such as poultry incinerators, poultry drystacks, cattle watering systems, and grassed waterways.
The deadline for application is Sept. 5. Call 336-679-8052 ext. 3 with questions.
