Curious about the Vermont Pay for Phosphorus Program? Interested in enrolling for 2023? Already enrolled in the 2022 program and have questions or want to connect with other farmers?
View this recording from Tuesday, November 1st from 3pm to 5 pm for a Pay for Phosphorus (now called Pay for Performance) Info Session.
The Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District hosted the session alongside the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food & Markets Water Quality Program Coordinator, Brodie Haenke. Viewers will learn about the enrollment process, eligibility requirements, how the program is modeling phosphorus reductions, and what practices you may already be implementing that could contribute to reduced phosphorus in waterways and possibly lead to a payment.
This recording is for farmers who are interested in learning more and enrolling in the program in 2023 or future years, as well as farmers who are currently enrolled in the 2022 program and want to learn more about FarmPREP or have questions to ask the District, Agency of Ag, or other farmers in the program peer-to-peer.
To make sure you're eligible for the 2023 program, don't forget to take a manure sample each year from every manure source, ensure your soil samples are up to date, and have your records and plans up-to-date in your Nutrient Management Plan!
