Including Eight Mile Creek, Wabash River and Rock Creek sub watersheds.

Do you have property in the Upper Wabash River Watershed which include the Eight Mile or Rock Creek?  We have a Cost Share Grant that will assist in encouraging the transition to no-till and the use of cover crops and to enrich soil health and reduce runoff from fields into the Little River watershed and its tributaries. Cost-share eligible items such as cover crops, no-till planter equipment modifications, field border, filter strip, water and sediment control basin and several other practices in the NRCS FOTG that promote soil conservation and reduced run-off.
