July 8, 2019by ncdea

CALIFORNIA, RCD of Tehama County – The California Department of Food and Agriculture’s Office of Environmental Farming and Innovation recently announced its grant awardees for the Healthy Soils Incentives Program and the State Water Efficiency Enhancement Program.

The Resource Conservation District of Tehama County provided Climate Smart Agriculture technical assistance to a variety of Sacramento Valley agricultural producers during the open enrollment period for both grant funding opportunities.

Staff engaged in one-on-one assistance with nine producers for the soil application, of which seven submitted applications and four were awarded grant funds. Funding of as much as $75,000 per agricultural operation was awarded to implement on-farm practices that improve soil health, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and store carbon. The program is part of the California Climate Investments associated with the state’s cap and trade proceeds.
