Soil and Water Conservation Districts throughout the state provide financial incentives to landowners to implement conservation practices that help prevent soil erosion and protect water resources. District staff provides technical support with the design, implementation and maintenance of these practices.
By promoting good farming techniques that help keep soil on the fields and waters clean, each soil and water conservation district is conserving the productivity of Missouri’s working lands.
If you are interested in participating in the cost-share program, call the district office at 573-224-3519.
The primary funding for these cost-share practices comes from the one-tenth-of-one-percent parks, soils and water sales tax, which is shared by the Department of Natural Resources’ Soil and Water Conservation Program and the Division of State Parks.
