Great Lakes Restoration Initiative – Nutrient Reduction Program (GLRI-NRP) State Producer Agreement:
The GLRI-NRP is a voluntary program that reimburses farmers to plant cover crops, install drainage management devices such as controlled drainage structures, soil testing, precision soil sampling with fertilizer placement and over-wintering cover crop system and manure storage facilities. In addition to reducing runoff of nutrients and pesticides the practices will allow farmers to manage the water from their fields, ultimately enhancing production. Cropland enrolled must be approved by local SWCD technical staff and ODNR Division of Soil and Water Resources area engineers.
For more information or assistance with a GLRI-NRP Agreement please contact Lucas SWCD Agricultural Conservationist Dj Mears at: 419-344-2371
