The article reports that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) will provide extra funding of $40 million to help farmers taking part in the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) complete conservation projects. The funding was announced by Chuck Conner, Deputy Secretary of USDA in his speech to the Indiana Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts at their annual meeting in Indianapolis. According to him the money will be used for one-time payment adjustments, which will help the producers to fully implement those practices, which will boost the protection of natural resources and lessen the impact of high-energy prices by reducing producers, need for energy. The one-time adjustment will apply to participants who signed EQIP contracts in 2004 or before.
