State grant, NRD providing cost share for soil moisture probes
Cost-share funds that pay for one-half of the cost of soil moisture probes are available from the Upper Republican NRD.
The NRD is accepting applications from ag producers/landowners in Chase, Dundy and Perkins Counties to get reimbursed for the cost of up to three soil moisture probes used in 2019.
The application period has begun. Applications will be accepted and approved on a first-come, first-serve basis until all available cost share has been obligated, said Nate Jenkins, NRD assistant manager.
To apply for cost-share, get an application form from the URNRD website at www.urnrd.org or pick one up at the office at 511 East Fifth St. in Imperial.
