The state of Wisconsin is expanding farmland preservation agreements and increasing the tax credits. Farmland Preservation is a voluntary program that started in the 70s. It gives financial incentives for farmers to keep their land in production while preserving soil and water quality. Some of the new changes in recently passed legislation are that the time commitment to the program is shorter and the financial incentive is higher. Farmland Preservation Program Manager Tim Jackson says there's room for more farmers to enroll with only about 20% of eligible acres in a preservation program. Farmland Preservation Program Manager Wednesday Coye says she hopes these changes will help boost enrollment numbers.
