Farm Argonomic Practice Applications are Now Open

Farm Agronomic Practice Program Applications Open Now

Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food & Markets The Farm Agronomic Practice (FAP) Program is now open for applications from Vermont farms to support the installation of field conservation practices this summer through next spring. This program invests in soil-based agronomic practices that improve soil quality, increase crop production, and reduce erosion and surface runoff from agricultural fields.

The Farm Argonomic Practice program operates on a first-come-first-served model and requires relatively little paperwork compared to some other funding programs. If you are interested in applying conservation practices on your farm, we encourage you to look into this program and to apply as far ahead of time as possible. Applications are currently being accepted for Vermont farms interested in beginning new agronomic practices between July 1, 2022, to June 30, 2023 may now apply.

The program cannot fund the same practice on the same field that the applicant is receiving payment for under another state or federal agreement (such as EQIP or CSP)
