Farmland Preservation program participantsadvised to check conservation compliance deadlines

Dodge County farmers that are under a Farmland Preservation Program (FPP) conservation compliance schedule should check the compliance dates on their schedules to be sure that they will be able to complete all of the soil and water conservation activities now required under the FPP by the deadline shown on their schedule. Compliance dates vary, with some in 2013, some in 2014, and still others in 2015. The absolute final date to be in full compliance with all applicable soil and water conservation standards is Dec. 31, 2015.

Changes made to the FPP by the Wisconsin legislature in 2009 now require most farmers participating in FPP to comply with several new soil and water conservation standards. In addition to the requirement to maintain soil erosion rates at or below tolerable levels on all enrolled cropland, all participants are now also required to prepare and follow nutrient management plans on their cropland. For farmers with livestock and/or manure storage facilities, there are several new manure management conservation standards that may also require some additional conservation work to be done.

All farmers participating in the FPP should take some time to check their schedules so that they understand what is required for their farms. If compliance is not achieved by the date specified on a participant's compliance schedule, the Dodge County Land Conservation Committee will need to consider issuing that participant a FPP Notice of Noncompliance, which will disqualify them from receiving future FPP income tax credits.

If you have any questions about your farm's conservation compliance requirements, or if you would like to request assistance in meeting the conservation requirements on your compliance schedule, please call the Dodge County Land Conservation Department at 386-3660.
