Whole Farm Conservation Plan Incentive Program
A Sussex Conservation District Planner will work with producers to assess all natural resource concerns on the farm and document and develop a plan to address those resource concerns. Not only will the conservation plan document what the landowner is currently doing on the farm but also make recommendations on other best management practices that will address natural resource concerns such as water quality, soil health, air quality, wildlife, etc.
Cost-Share for the following components:
- Development of a Whole Farm Conservation Plan by an SCD Conservation Planner
- $125 per whole farm conservation plan on 10 to 49.9 acres.
- $250 per whole farm conservation plan on 50 acres or more.
Funding will be limited to the first 100 whole farm conservation plans and applications will be taken on first-come, first-served basis. For more information.
Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMPs)
CNMPs are conservation plans unique to livestock operations. These plans document practices and strategies adopted by livestock operations to address natural resource concerns related to soil erosion, livestock manure and disposal of organic by-products.If you own a livestock operation and need a new or updated CNMP please fill out the required fields below. A Conservation Planner will contact you to collect any additional information needed and to schedule a farm visit.
