LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas farmers and landowners have until Jan. 16 to submit applications for financial assistance to install conservation practices through nine Mississippi River Basin Healthy Watersheds Initiative projects.

Michael Sullivan, a conservationist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, says the projects in Arkansas are being implemented to accelerate conservation treatment to improve water quality, maintain productivity and enhance wildlife habitat.

The projects open for sign-up include the Middle Cache River Project in portions of Craighead, Jackson, Poinsett and Woodruff counties, the Grand Prairie Watershed in parts of Arkansas, Lonoke, Prairie and Monroe counties and the Big Watershed in a portion of Phillips County.

Other projects include the Tyronza River Watershed in portions of Mississippi and Poinsett counties and the Wapanocca Lake Watershed in part of Crittenden County.
