A limited number of farmers in Pocahontas County may be eligible for cost-share assistance in establishing pilot recreations enterprises on their cropland in 1963.
The enterprises, part of the long-range program of land-use adjustment to help farmers convert their farms from crop production to grass, trees, wildlife and income-producing recreations uses, were authorized by Congress as a part of the Food and Agricultural Act of 1962.
Practices aimed at developing fishing, swimming, boating, hunting preserves, picnicking, camping and other recreational use of the land will be considered in developing the pilot developments in addition to wildlife conservation practices with soil and water benefits.
