Highly Erodible Land and Wetland Conservation Compliance Reminder

By: USDA / FSA Press Release
By: USDA / FSA Press Release

The Marathon County Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers and landowners that they are required to have a conservation system in place on all highly erodible land (HEL). Wetland compliance is also required.

Renting new cropland, purchasing new land, breaking up additional land, changing crops, and changing or removing existing conservation practices can result in compliance issues.

Participants are encouraged to contact the Marathon County FSA Office before taking any of the above actions.

In addition, it is important that producers and landowners contact FSA before modifying, tiling, draining, dredging, filling or leveling any wetland or drainage ditches. Failure to obtain advance approval for any of these activities can result in loss of all federal payments and program eligibility.

Producers or land owners who would like more information or have questions about HEL can contact the Marathon County FSA Office at 326 River Drive call 715 848 2330 or visit www.fsa.usda.gov.
