The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is currently accepting applications from South Carolina farmers, ranchers and private landowners for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and Agricultural Conservation Easement Program (ACEP) for fiscal year 2018 funding with an application deadline of Nov. 17. EQIP and ACEP are voluntary conservation programs that provide financial and technical assistance to agricultural producers and landowners. “NRCS in South Carolina is committed to working with farmers and private landowners to improve, protect and preserve working lands through Farm Bill conservation programs,” said Ann English, State Conservationist for NRCS in South Carolina.
