ROCKINGHAM -- The Richmond Soil and Water Conservation office has announced that local farmers and agricultural landowners can now receive agriculture cost share funding.

According to the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, eligible persons are those who are currently owners or renters of an existing agricultural property that has been in operation for at least three years.

As there is a need to address nonpoint source pollution (soil erosion, excessive fertilizer use, animal waste contamination and improper use of chemicals), this program helps aid in eliminating this problem via technical and financial resources.

Those interested in finding out more information about this beneficial funding, are encouraged to contact Kelsey Lovin at (910) 817-3220. Or can stop by RSWC's office located at 123 Caroline Street, Rockingham, N.C., Suite 300.
