- Exclusion Netting for spotted wing drosophila fruit flies
- Weather Stations to increase pest control precision
The New Hampshire Conservation Districts in partnership with UNH Cooperative Extension and the Xerces Society are offering a cost share program to implement these practices!
Farmers will have the opportunity purchase and install SWD exclusion netting and/or weather stations linked to the Network for Environment and Weather Applications (NEWA) and receive technical assistance for the installation and utilization of the equipment. Grant funding will pay 75% of the cost of equipment and the farmer will be responsible for 25%. Applications are due by March 1, 2020.
This funding opportunity is provided by the Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant, and The New Hampshire State Conservation Committee Conservation Grant Program through the purchase of Conservation License Plates, known as “Moose Plates”.
