Are there resource concerns on your deeded or leased property that you would like to improve? We can help. The United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service is currently taking applications for financial and technical assistance to help you with your resource concerns.
What is a resource concern? Resource concerns may include but are not limited to such things as lack of quality forage for grazing, low vigor and health of vegetative species, lack of water for livestock and wildlife, low crop and hay production yields, interior fence implementation to help improve overall grazing system, lack of irrigation efficiency, control of invasive and noxious weeds, soil erosion, wind erosion, and to help improve overall health and economics of your ranch or farm.
A few of the conservation programs that are available to address these resource concerns include but are not limited to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, the Sage-grouse Initiative and the Conservation Stewardship Program.
For more information on all the USDA programs offered for financial and technical assistance contact Matt Phillippi in the NRCS Tooele Field Office at 882-2276 ext. 11. The USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
