BMP cost share signup begins Monday

The Tidewater Soil and Water Conservation District is holding a signup for the Virginia Agricultural Best Management Practices Cost Share program for eligible farmers in Gloucester, Mathews and Middlesex counties beginning Monday and running through Aug. 7.

This is the time to sign up for all best management practices, with an emphasis on cover crops, according to a Tidewater SWCD release. The program offers cost share assistance to farmers as an incentive to carry out construction or implementation of selected BMPs in order to reduce non-point source pollution.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the office is limiting to one guest at a time. If you plan to sign up in-person, call 804-699-3482 to be sure they can accommodate you.
