Farm Agronomic Practices (FAP) Program – Cover Crop Apps Due
August 1, 2021
The FAP Program utilizes state funding to help Vermont farms implement soil-based agronomic practices that improve soil quality, increase crop production, and reduce erosion and agricultural waste discharges. The FAP program also provides education and instructional activity grants to support outreach regarding the impacts of agricultural practices on water quality and current state agricultural water quality regulations. Eligible practices include: cover cropping, conservation crop rotation, conservation crop rotation with nurse crop; conservation tillage, no till pasture and hayland renovation; rotational grazing; manure injection; and educational or instructional activities. Rotational grazing applications are due June 15; cover crop applications are due August 1; and all other FAP practices will be reviewed in order of receipt. Learn More
