Grassland Application Deadline Approaching

KSCB News - January 5, 2012 8:05 am

The Natural Resources Conservation Service
in Kansas says Jan. 25 is the deadline to submit applications for
the grassland reserve program.
Eric Banks, the state conservationist for the program, says
Kansas has the most productive native grassland in the world. Banks
says the program offers a way for ranchers and farmers to help
ensure the natural resource remains healthy for years to come.
Last year, Kansas received $1.4 million to fund the program,
which was authorized by the 2008 Farm Bill.
The voluntary program offers landowners the opportunity to
protect grasslands through permanent easements and rental
contracts.
Only applications submitted by the deadline will be considered
for funding in the 2012 program.
