A new project funded by the NRCS Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) in Missouri will highlight the interdependence of agriculture and conservation by providing cost-share opportunities for producers to use precision data to establish field borders, streambank buffers or pollinator habitat on their farms.
Missouri farmers in Linn, Chariton, Macon, Randolph, Lafayette, Pettis and Saline counties are eligible for the funding.
This project is a partnership among the Missouri Department of Conservation, MFA Incorporated, Associated Electric, The Nature Conservancy, Quail Forever, Missouri DNR, Bayer, Missouri Corn, Missouri Soybean, Missouri Rural Water Association, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Missouri Corn Merchandizing Council, Missouri River Bird Conservatory and The Fertilizer Institute. Participant logos are below.
Goals are to enhance water and soil health, provide essential habitat for pollinators and grassland bird species on agricultural land, and help producers avoid the need for natural resource regulatory requirements. Once eligible areas are identified, special funding opportunities through the RCPP with the partners listed above will allow for installation of practices on those acres
