Funds available for water quality practices Up to 1.4 million dollars are available statewide in Iowa for implementing conservation practices that improve water quality, according to Greg Marek, District Conser- vationist with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service in Orange City. The three practices that are available include cover crops, nitrification inhibitor, and no-till/strip-till. Only pro- ducers who have never used these practices are eligible to receive funding through this program. An incentive pay- ment of $25 per acre will be offered for cover crops, $3 per acre for nitrification inhibitor, and S10 per acre for no-till or strip-till. There is an acre limit of 160 acres for each of these practices. A person may sign up for one, two/or all three of these practices on their farm. These practices help reduce nitrogen and/or phospho- rus losses which will help meet the goals of the Iowa Nu- trient Reduction Strategy. The Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy is a voluntary program to reduce fertilizer losses. One of the impacts of excessive fertilizer losses includes the creation of the "dead zone" in the Gulf of Mexico. Anyone in Sioux county who is interested in trying any of these practices should contact the Sioux County Soil and Water Conservation District office by July 17. The Soil and Water Conservation District Office is at 716 8th St. SE in Orange City, or you may call 712-737-2253, Extension 3.
