Comments on the Environmental Quality Incentives Program Interim Rule

Oregon Tilth co-signed a letter along with several other organizations with the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition’s public comments on the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) Interim Rule.

We believe EQIP plays an important role in aiding not only those farmers and ranchers looking to reduce the negative impacts of their operations, but also those who seek to increase overall conservation benefits on their farms. In the comments, we offer several recommendations that, if made, would greatly increase EQIP’s ability to serve sustainable and organic producers, optimize the program’s cost-effectiveness, and support a shift toward more environmentally sound agricultural practices.
