AgEP Practice Deadline Extended Due to Weather - 11/15/18
posted by: Sherry Pearson

Cooperators with an Agriculture Enhancement Program contract for Lime or a Water System will have the opportunity to extend their practice deadline until May 31, 2019. 

Due to unusually wet weather conditions this fall, the board has agreed to offer an extension until May 31, 2019.  This only effects the practices of lime and water systems. 

Please contact the district office if you have a contract and need an extension or need to cancel.  A letter will be mailed out the first week of December giving you the option.  If you do not return a signed form indicating your decision, the contract will expire as originally stated in your contract on January 1, 2019.
