About the Webinar
Through the Environmental Quality Incentives (EQIP) Program’s Organic Initiative, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) provides technical assistance to certified organic, transitioning to organic, and exempt from certification producers. The Initiative also provides financial assistance for organic producers to address natural resource concerns related to organic production. This can include support developing a grazing plan, assistance with pollinator habitat and buffers, and manure management assistance. This webinar will provide information on the Organic Initiative and how organic dairy farmers can use this program on their operations.
