An Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) informational meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 17, at the S.J. Parker 1890 Extension Complex on the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff campus. The meeting will get underway at 10 a.m. and end at 1 p.m.
The meeting will focus on identification of the common and the not so common conservation practices used by growers for which cost share funds are available. These practices include crop rotation, poly pipe installation to improve irrigation efficiency and rotational or cell grazing.
UAPB Small Farm Program representatives will also help attendees’ complete EQIP application forms.
EQIP funds more than 100 cost share conservation practices. Some of the practices are already used by producers. The deadline to sign up for funding for 2016 is Nov. 20, 2015.
The workshop is free. For more information or if you have special needs, contact Kellye Luckett at (870) 575-7226. The S.J. Parker 1890 Extension Complex is located on Oliver Road, off University Avenue.
