Pasture renovation signups start

The Kentucky Soil and Water Conservation Commission will resume State Cost Share sign-ups for the period of Jan. 1 to Jan. 25.

The January cost share applications should be submitted to the Conservation District by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25.

This year, the Pasture and Hayland Renovation practice allows producers interested in renovating existing pasture and hayland an option to specifically assist them in doing so.

Any permanently established pasture or hayland with less than 10 percent legume composition is eligible. A soil test that is no more than three years old is required. Lime and fertilizer must be applied, according to test results. The producer can seed grass along with legume but cost-share is not available for that practice.

Approval is expected by Feb. 15 so producers will be able to take advantage of spring planting season.

For more information, stop by Conservation District office at 1105 S. Columbia Ave. or call 465-8554 Ext. 3. The office hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
