FSA highly erodable land, wetland provisions reminder
Clarke-Decatur County farmers are reminded that in order to receive payments from USDA, compliance with Highly Erodible Land Conservation (HELC) and Wetland Conservation (WC) provisions are required.
“As spring field work commences, farmers should remember that some activities could jeopardize the eligibility for benefits now or in the future,” said Joyce Frost, county executive director for the Clarke-Decatur County FSA Office. “Activities such as breaking out new land, clearing trees or other similar activities to bring land into crop production, including what was Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acreage should be reviewed first.”
Farmers with highly erodible soils HEL determined soils are reminded to follow tillage, crop residue, and rotation requirements as specified in their conservation plans or following an acceptable conservation system.
