$1.5 million is available for organic farming in Kansas. The money comes as part of the $50 million made available from the 2008 Farm Bill.
Money was set aside for Kansas’ Environmental Quality Incentives Program that encourages organic farming.
The application must be turned in by June 5 and those who apply first will be considered first.
Producers who qualify must have or be in the process of obtaining organic certification. The $1.5 million is to be used to help farmers with the certification process.
The Natural Resource Conservation Service will be looking at the way producers conserve crop rotation, cover crops, manage nutrients, manage pests and how the land is grazed.
