New program to improve soil health launched by the North Dakota Department of Agriculture



North Dakota – The North Dakota Department of Agriculture launched a new project this week to improve the state’s soil health.

The Soil Health Cover Crop Grant Program was made possible by the 67th legislative assembly’s funding.

The Agriculture Department will use a lottery mechanism to provide cost-share assistance to farmers.

New applicants can receive $15 dollars per acre, and a future payment of $10 per acre for repeat applicants.

The grant is capped at 50 acres per producer each year. Applications for the grant open Sept. 1, and must be filled out online by Oct. 1.
