The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) announces the Soil Health Cover Crop Grant Program, a newly added program made possible through funding provided by the 67th Legislative Assembly. NDDA will provide cost-share assistance to producers via a lottery system.
Cover crops must be planted by August 31, 2021, and the online application must be completed by October 1, 2021. There is a cost-share payment of $15 per acre for new applicants and a future cost-share payment of $10 per acre for repeat applicants. There is a 50-acre cap per applicant per year.
Complete details are available at https://www.nd.gov/ndda/program/soil-health-cover-crop-grant-program or by contacting Jason Wirtz at 701-220-1628 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NDDA will be opening applications by September 1, 2021 and closing them October 1, 2021 for the 2021 season. Applications will reopen again next year for the next growing season.
