Signup before July 4 for NRCS conservation program in Kansas The Natural Resources Conserva- tion Service has set July 3 as a cutoff date to begin evaluation of applica- tions received in Kansas, according to Harold L. Klaege, state conServation- ist. "These applications will be consid- ered for the funding allocation we re- ceived for Kansas for Fiscal Year 2003," Klaege said. "If producers want to apply, they need to get to their NRCS office or local county conservation district soon, so their application is ready to be con- sidered for the current funding," said Klaege. . "EQIP is a valuable tool to help or state's agricultural producers meet the significant environmental regulations they face, while continuing to be good stewards of the land. EQIP helps them implement conservation practices that protect our natural resources," said Klaege• The final rule revises the purpose of EQIP to optimize environmental ben- efits and clarifies definitions and terms, especially definitions for individuals, person sand eligibility issues• 4 resource concerns addressed The objective of EQIP, according to Klaege, is to address natural re- source concerns through the applica- tion of improved conservation systems. EQIP i~. an environmental enhance-~ ment program. + • EQIP, one of the largest programs m the Farm Bill, is a voluntary conser- vation program that promotes environ- mental quality and assists producers to meet local, state and federal re'gula- dons. In Kansas, E.QIP funds will help farmers and ranchers install conserva- tion practices that protect Kansas' four natural resources concerns: • airquality- address excessive wind erosion • livestock management, grazing lands health • water quality, water quantity to address ground and surface water con- servation. Other opportunities offered In addition to the regular EQIP,, Kansas farmers and ranchers may be interested in applying for EQIP funds to address drought-impacted natural resource concerns or the ground and surface water savings. The Kansas NRCS has reserved over $1 million of 2003 EQIP funds to address heightened natural resource concerns due to extreme drought con- ditions. This assistance will be offered in 31 western Kansas counties deter- mined to be in moderate to extreme drought by the US drought Monitor Index. Counties where this assistance is available are Cheyenne, Rawlins, Decatur, Norton, Sherman, Thomas, Sheridan, Wallace, Logan, Gove, Greeley, Hamilton, Stanton, Wichita, Scott, Kearny, Morton, Grant, Finney, Lane, Ness, Trego, Ellis, Graham, Rooks, Osborne, Mitchell, Republic, Jewell, Smith, and PhiUps• Ranchers within the drought im- pacted area will be eligible for 70 per- cent cost share in addition to incentive payments to implement conservation practices that may be used to address grazing lands health concerns that in- clude deferred grazing, planned graz- ing system, livestock water develop- meat, prescribed grazing, use exclu- sion and fencing. Water conservation is statewide Producers across the state may ap- ply for assistance through special sec- tion of EQIP, ground and surface water conservation. Assistance to a pro- ducer may be provided only to facili- tate a conservation measure that re- suits in net savings in ground or sur- face water resources in the agricultural operation of the producer. Conservation systems and practices will be used to promote ground and . surface water conservation to improve irrigation systems, enhance irrigation effieiencies; convert to the production of less water intensive cropping sys- tems, and improve water storage• Apply at local NRCS Office Agricultural producers interested in participating in EQIP can apply at any time at their local NRCS office or USDA Service Center. NRCS will evaluate each application and give higher priority to those applications that use cost-effective conservation practices, treat multiple resource con- cerns, address national, state or local priorities and provide the most envi- ronmental benefits.
