Applications for the practice of argonomy on the farm are now open
Vermont Agency for Agriculture, Food and Markets The Farm Agronomic Practice (FAP) program is now open for applications from Vermont farms to support the installation of field conservation practices this summer through next spring. This program invests in soil-based agronomic practices that improve soil quality, increase agricultural production, and reduce erosion and surface runoff from agricultural fields.
The Farm Argonomic Practice program operates on a first-come, first-served model and requires relatively little paperwork compared to some other funding programs. If you are interested in implementing conservation practices on your farm, we encourage you to learn about this program and apply as soon as possible. Applications are currently being accepted for Vermont farms interested in starting new agronomic practices between July 1, 2022 and June 30, 2023 can now apply.
The program cannot fund the same practice on the same area that the applicant is receiving payment under another state or federal agreement (such as EQIP or CSP)
