Adair Soil and Water Conservation District

Soil and water conservation practices installed on agricultural land save soil from eroding and reduce nutrients and pesticides from entering Missouri’s waterways. The Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax provides financial incentives and share the cost between the farmer and the state for implementing soil and water conservation practices that prevent or control soil erosion and protect water quality.

Landowner Requirements for Receiving Cost-Share
A cooperator (landowner/operator) must have a farm number through the Farm Service Agency in order to be eligible to sign-up for a cost-share contract.
The cooperator must have an approved conservation plan which includes the requested practice before the contract is approved.
A cost-share contract must be board approved before the conservation practice is started.
