Rock Gateway

Rock Gateway is our most popular cost-share practice. A wet season often results in our gateways being excessively rutted and eroded.  The purpose of this program is to help Woodford County farmers with the necessary means to repair gateways in order to reach an area of the farm that makes it difficult for animals or machinery to cross the majority of the year 

2022-2023 Application



Field Cover Crop

To promote soil and water quality in the area, this cost share practice will pay $10 per acre for up to 100 acres, not to cover crop after harvest of corn for grain or silage, or soybeans. This cost share practice will also pay $10 per acre for up to 50 acres, not to exceed 50 acres for the planting of a cover crop after harvest of tobacco. 

Garden Cover Crop

Cover crops for home vegetable gardens need to grow quickly and compete with weeds, and they also need to be managed easily in spring and can be easily plowed under. Producers can select cover crops based on needs in your garden like by planting a to fix nitrogen or planting grass cover crops to scavenge leftover nutrients from the vegetable garden then recycled by plowing under in spring.
