EAST LANSING, Sept. 30, 2015— A broad partnership, including The Nature Conservancy, the Michigan AgriBusiness Association and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, wants to help farmers in the Saginaw Bay watershed improve water quality.
The Saginaw Bay Regional Conservation Partnership Program will make over $7.6 million in USDA financial assistance available to help farmers adapt new conservation practices. Private sector crop consultants and other partners will assist the effort by informing farmers about the resources available through the program. Farmers in designated watersheds can submit applications any time at their local USDA Service Center. Applications will be ranked and selected for funding near the end of each month beginning on Oct. 30, 2015, and continuing into next year. Read more
