The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural Resources Conservation Service has set an April 19 deadline for California growers with certified organic farms and those making the transition to organic to apply for financial aid.
The conservation service said more than $3 million is available statewide as part of its Environmental Quality Incentives Program.
Organic producers can receive up to $20,000 per year or $80,000 over six years.
