The Oklahoma Conservation Commission is now offering its Soil Health Implementation Program (SHIP), which will help farmers and ranchers.
SHIP is open to Oklahoma agricultural producers who are interested in improving their land and operation resilience through soil health.
Applicants must be willing to host a field day on their farm and become a mentor to other producers in promoting regenerative farming and ranching techniques that improve soil health.
Accepted applicants will work with the OCC Soil Health Team to create and implement a three-year plan to advance their soil health focused production system. SHIP provides technical assistance and some cost reimbursement to implement approved plans.
Application does not guarantee acceptance into or funding through the program.
You must apply now through March 1, through our local conservation district.
Contact the Okmulgee County Conservation District, 719 E. 8th Street, Suite B. at 918-756-8111.
