NRCS announces 2019 honey bee pollinator initiative

 

News from USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service

BOZEMAN – The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service is offering additional funding through its Environmental Quality Incentives Program to target honey bee pollinator resource concerns in Montana in 2019.

While NRCS accepts EQIP applications on a continuous basis, NRCS has set a deadline of May 10 to apply for this 2019 initiative funding.

NRCS will work with agricultural producers to combat future declines by helping them to implement conservation practices that provide forage for honey bees while enhancing habitat for other pollinators and wildlife. EQIP offers financial and technical assistance to eligible participants to install or implement structural and management practices on eligible agricultural land. Conservation practices must be implemented to NRCS standards and specifications. 

In Montana, socially disadvantaged, limited resource, and beginning farmers and ranchers will receive a higher payment rate for eligible conservation practices applied.

For more information about EQIP, or other programs offered by NRCS, please contact your local USDA Service Center or visit: www.mt.nrcs.usda.gov.
