BISMARCK – The application deadline for the 2022 Soil Health Cover Crop Grant Program is tomorrow.

“As a conservation program, the primary goal of the program is to protect and enhance soil health statewide,” Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. “In particular, the program targets cropland areas impacted with saline or alkaline soils.”

Cover crops must have been planted by Sept. 15, 2022. Producers’ own seed is allowed but cover crop planting must be verified by the North Dakota Department of Agriculture or North Dakota State University. The online application must be completed by Oct. 1, 2022. There is a cost-share payment of $25 per acre for applicants. There is a 160-acre cap per applicant per year.
