Navigating USDA Conservation Programs

Expert Guidance

Thinking about signing up for EQIP or CRP? Or any of the other Farm Bill programs through the NRCS office or FSA? Let me give you a heads up on 1) How to  score well on your applications with conservation planning 2) Knowing the fine print of your contract 3) Understanding the obligations of signing your contract 4) Implementing the Conservation Plan and submitting the paperwork for payment. With over 30 years of experience in conservation planning and contract management, Swartz Land Consulting can take you through the the process and make sure you have a good outcome and experience.  Information on Farm Bill Conservation Programs can be found on the Ohio NRCS website along with the financial assistance available. A Farm Plan is the foundation to all of these programs, including a Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan (CNMP). I can help develop these plans with all the necessary components - with manure applications or without. (See the Nutrient Management button above.)

Let me help you navigate through the process by helping to 1) understand the wetland provisions and your options for farming these areas 2) be aware of your obligations with a designated wetland on the farm and 3) help with mitigating these wetland areas and filing the proper paperwork. 

Wetland mitigation details are spelled out on the Ohio NRCS website as well as basic conservation compliance guidelines.


About Swartz Land Consulting

My name is Wendell Swartzentruber - Swartz Land Consulting was founded in 2016 after retiring from USDA NRCS with 30+ years experience. I am a one man consulting firm with a single mission: to assist farmers and landowners in their conservation and stewardship efforts. This includes information on USDA Conservation Programs, Crop Consulting, Nutrient Management, Soils Evaluations, and much more.

I am a problem solver. I provide solutions for crop production and land management issues.

I love "the land".  It keeps giving and giving - as it has for centuries - food and fiber. It is the foundation for all of life and we rely on it every day. 

Although there are a number of services offered on this website, I have experience in assisting in many other areas as well. If you think I can help you - do not hesitate to call. 

Remember - He makes the grass grow.....
