Cost-Share - Practical Farmers of Iowa Skip to content

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.

Learn more about cover crop cost-share here.

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.

Wildlife Conservation

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