Nebraska farmers and ranchers can sign up for conservation programs through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Producers interested in soil, water and wildlife conservation or wetlands restoration can apply for funds through the USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service.
Details about the voluntary grant programs are available online at www.ne.nrcs.usda.gov or through local USDA service centers.
The deadline to apply is Nov. 18. However, Nebraska state conservationist Craig Derickson says funds are limited, so landowners are encouraged to get their applications in as soon as possible.
