Virginia Agriculture Cost-share Program Sign-up Open

2018-2019 Virginia Agricultural BMP Cost-Share Program is now open for sign-ups.  This program provides cost-share for producers to implement conservation practices on their property to protect water quality.  Since 2001, Halifax SWCD has provided this program to producers in Halifax Co.  The program includes practices such as: stream exclusion, cover crops, permanent vegetative cover on cropland, afforestation of open-land, grassed waterways, and critical area plantings.  Anyone interested in the program should contact the Halifax SWCD office at (434)476-7923 to find out more information and to set up a time to go over different options.
