Of particular note is the $1.1 million in funding that will be allocated to mitigating the drought in the Missouri Headwaters Basin. NRCS will accept applications from landowners interested in practices that will increase water conservation, improve riparian, floodplain, and water management, and promote upland management conservation. Specifically, those practices could include improvements to irrigation infrastructure and efficiency, improvements in water storage capacity and off-stream stock water tanks, and soil health practices to increase soil moisture holding capacity.
