These USDA/NRCS assistance programs (aka cost-share programs) have been designed to address natural resource concerns on your land. They're 100% voluntary and funded through the Farm Bill, to protect our valuable natural resources, such as soil, water, timber, & wildlife to name a few. Some programs offer reimbursement for implementing different practices (like EQIP & CSP) while other programs offer annual rent payments for continued use (such as CRP).
The process is simple.
Soil health depends on diversity, specifically soil biodiversity. In the 1990s 'soil quality' was a commonly used term that often people confuse for 'soil health'.

Below you will find some information about developing and maintaining soil health.
Many wildlife species benefit from a healthy & balanced habitat, including deer, quail, turkeys, song birds, small mammals, bears, elk, and others. Be sure to check out the resources below to help you achieve balance on your property to maximize your wildlife encounters.
