Michigan, Indiana and Ohio are sharing in funds from the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service intended to control nutrients from farms in the Lake Erie Basin running into the lake.
Michigan is set to receive $2.5 million for the first year of the five-year program, Elaine Brown with the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development said.
"We're trying to help farmers be good stewards," Ms. Brown said of the funds, which can be used for such projects as nutrient management plans, cover crops and tile management to control or re-route water from drainage tiles.
Applications for the funds can be submitted July 1-17.
Ms. Brown said local soil conservation districts have more information about the program, as does the Michigan Farm Bureau.
