2020 Water Quality Workshop

The Black Swamp Education Group of Ottawa, Paulding, Defiance, Putnam, Wood, Lucas, Fulton and Williams SWCD are pleased to offer workshops to area educators on a variety of topics.

  Nutrient Application Program Available at Paulding SWCD

 

Thanks to a grant through the United States EPA, Paulding SWCD now has a subsurface nutrient application program available to local producers. Acres are not limited to Paulding County, as producers from Van Wert or Defiance County may also participate in the program. Equipment is operated by SWCD Staff, all we need from you is a fertilizer prescription for a single product bin (you can have a blend), and arrangements for fertilizer delivery to the field from your service provider.

Cost Share Funding Available at Paulding SWCD

 

Working Lands Buffer Program 

The Ohio Working Lands program will encourage producers to establish year-round vegetative cover on eligible crop land. The program will promote conversion, establishment and maintenance of forage/hay land on certain cropland acres. 

Program enrollment officially kicks off for Ohio farmers in the Western Lake Erie Basin on June 15th. Farmers will be able to sign up for the program at the Paulding Soil & Water Conservation District. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ohio Working Lands Small Grains Program

The Ohio Working Lands Small Grains Program is a voluntary program that will encourage producers in the Western Lake Erie Basin to plant small grains such as wheat, barley, oats, or cereal rye on eligible cropland. As the “working lands” name implies, participants must plant and harvest small grains, land apply manure, and plant a cover crop to receive a cost-share payment to help offset operating costs. The program benefits the planting of small grains not only for the conservation benefits, but to provide livestock producers with a longer application window to land apply manure and nutrients. 

 

Lake Erie Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program

Do you have a ditch or stream running through your farm that needs a filter strip? How about that one area that’s hard to farm because it’s always wet?  The Paulding Soil and Water Conservation District is ready to help you evaluate how your bottom line and Lake Erie’s water quality can benefit by signing up for this program.
