Cost-share Program

To increase the use of conservation practices in the watershed, Yahara Pride Farms provides a cost-share program during the late summer and fall months. The goal of the cost-share program is to allow farmers the opportunity to test new, innovative technologies with minimum risk, in hopes that producers will see the benefits from the technology and incorporate the practice into their standard operations.

The 2016 cost-share program offered the following:

  • Cover Crops ($40/acre for up to 50 acres)
  • Strip tillage ($15/acre for up to 50 acres)
  • Low Disturbance Manure Injection ($20/acre for up to 100 acre)
  • Low Disturbance Deep Tillage & Cover Crops ($55/acre for up to 50 acres)

The deadline to enroll in the program is November 15, 2016. A postcard was mailed to farmers in late September. If you didn’t get a postcard, download and mail here.
