With farmers stewarding more than 2 million acres of cover crops across the state, Iowa continues to be a conservation leader. Last fall, more than 3,500 farmers and landowners enrolled in the cost-share program funded through the Iowa Water Quality Initiative. More than 387,000 acres of cover crops, 11,000 acres of no-till or strip-till, and 6,000 acres of nitrification inhibitors were enrolled in the program in 2020. An estimated $12.7 million of private funding was invested to match the $6.8 million contributed by the state. To learn more about the soil health and water quality projects underway around Iowa, visit cleanwateriowa.org.  

Cost-share funding through the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship is limited to 160 acres per farmer or landowner. The funds will be made available in July, but farmers can start submitting applications immediately through their local soil and water conservation district offices. Farmers are encouraged to call their SWCD offices to inquire about additional cost-share funds available through other sources. Farmers who are planting cover crops for the first time are eligible for $25 per acre through the cost-share fund. Farmers who have already experienced the benefits of using cover crops and are continuing the practice can receive $15 per acre. Producers transitioning acres to no-till or strip-till are eligible for $10 per acre, and may receive $3 per acre for applying fall fertilizer using a nitrapyrin nitrification inhibitor.
