Low interest loan programs for agriculture producers to combine
The Oskaloosa Herald
After a successful three years, a low interest loan program for livestock operations will merge with a similar program designed to improve soil and water conservation, with funding to increase for both.
The programs offer low interest loans — 3 percent or less — for water quality-related improvements on agricultural land.
The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Division of Soil Conservation (IDALS-DSC) will now operate both programs.
