Jasper County Approved for Emergency Conservation Program
NEWTON — The Emergency Conservation Program is administered by the Farm Service Agency and covers damage to farmland, conservation structures, as well as damage to land in the floodplain. Producers/landowners who have suffered terrace washouts, flood debris, including sand and silt deposits, in the fields, and other damage to eligible conservation structures, should contact the Jasper County FSA Office at (641) 792-5019 before starting any clean-up activities in those areas. Sign-up runs through Aug. 5.
Producers with damaged land will need to sign the required forms and have the land inspected prior to starting any work to repair the damage which will include technical assistance to determine what is needed to rehabilitate the cropland. Producers not completing the required forms and not having the damage inspected prior to starting the repairs could result in program ineligibility and cost share assistance could be denied.
ECP may provide up to 75 percent cost share assistance to agricultural producers when it is too costly to rehabilitate the land without Federal assistance.
