Forage Improvement Program guidelines are now available

PAINTSVILLE The Johnson County Conservation District and the Johnson County Agricultural Development Council announce that the Hay & Pastureland Planting Program, also known as the Forage Improvement Program, has been initiated to improve forage quality and cash farm income in Johnson County.

The program, utilizing Phase I tobacco settlement funds, authorizes the conservation district to accept applications until funds are disbursed from landowners who wish to participate in the 50 percent matching cost share program. Participants are required to submit a soil test analysis for each field to be considered for funding. Soil tests must be updated within the 12-month period prior to the application.

The Forage Improvement Program will serve landowners by adding lime and fertilizer, as well as renovating pasture and hayland with the addition of clover or alfalfa.

For a full description of the Forage Improvement Program guidelines, contact the Johnson County Conservation District at (606) 789-5263 or visit the office in the Big Sandy USDA Service Center in Paintsville.
