Three programs are available to help farmers that had damage to pastures from the effects of flooding and excessive rainfall across North Carolina.

  • “Pasture Renovation & Cover Crop Seed Initiative” will put some of the funds donated to the NC Farm Bureau Hurricane Relief Fund to direct use helping farmers in the next few weeks. Producers will fill out an application on-line or can drop off an application at their county extension office. Details on the program and the application can be found here: NC Foundation of Soil and Water.
  • “Disaster Winter Forage Crop Incentive Program” aims to make direct payments to farmers to offset some of their expenses in establishing winter annual forage crops. The payment will be $20/acre on documented acres that meet the standards set for the program. Details on the program can be found here: Winter Forage Crop Program.
  • “Disaster Pasture Renovation Program” is designed to help producers establish perennial pastures that were killed or damage during the storms. The program will pay up to $225/acre (based on actual cost). Additional details are available here: SWC Pasture Renovation Program.
