Announcements: Conservation and Cover Crop Assistance Grant


Conservation and Cover Crop Assistance Grant 


Choctaw Lake Property Owner’s Association was awarded a grant with Ohio Farm Bureau to improve water quality inside their watershed. The grant is available to landowners and farmers in the Deer Creek Watershed above Choctaw Lake to support conservation practices such as cover crops, filter strips and grassed waterways. Ohio Farm Bureau’s goal is to expand and solidify local cooperative partnerships to improve water quality. Farmers can rent a John Deere 750 no till drill at a discounted rate of $10/acre (regularly $14/acre), which will be delivered free to the farm. In addition, up to $200 of the cost of seed will be reimbursed. Attached is the drill rental form with more information about the grant program, including a map of the Choctaw Lake Watershed.
