PFI’s cost-share programs help farmers and landowners make their farms more resilient by providing financial incentives and technical support to help implement and master a variety of resilient farming practices.

Using incentives and support, we help farmers with cover crops, diversifying crop rotations, reducing nitrogen, grazing, precision conservation and other practices that improve soil health and water quality, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase wildlife habitat.

Cover Crops

Seeding fall cover crops? We’ve got a number of programs that can help cover the cost.

Eligibility is linked to where you sell corn or soybeans.

Small Grains

This program is for growers extending their cropping rotation with a small-grain and legume cover crop.

We have cost-share for both the small-grain and corn years of your rotation.

We provide cost-share to help farmers and landowners pay for practices like prairie strips, oxbow wetlands and precision conservation.

Produce Safety

Our goal is to open more markets for more farmers.

We provide cost-share to help farmers pay for on-farm food safety improvements that enable them to meet the food safety requirements of more markets.

Beneficial Insects

We are seeking urban farmers who would like to plant beneficial insect habitat on their urban farm.

We will pay for native plants so you can create insectary strips or pollinator habitat to increase natural predation and pollination.
