USDA seeks input on conservation

July 17, 2013 | 09:41 AM

The U.S. Dept. of Agricultural, Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Harrison County Soil and Water Conservation District requests assistance in establishing environmental ranking criteria for Environmental Quality Incentive Program and Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program applicants.

EQIP and WHIP are conservation programs that provide technical and financial assistance to eligible land users who are producing food, feed or fiber for the public use.

Input and concerns will be gathered at a meeting Thursday, July 25, at 6 p.m. at the Harrison County Government Center, located at 245 Atwood St. in Corydon. The purpose of this meeting is to identify natural resource concerns in agriculture — soil, water, air, plants and animals — and related concerns in connection with row cropping, grazing, forestry, livestock, wildlife and other production agriculture in the county.

Light refreshments will be served.

For more information, call the NRCS/SWCD office at 738-8124, ext. 3.
