7 CFR 632.16 - Methods of applying planned land use and treatment.
(1) By performing the required treatment with his own labor and equipment.
(2) By hiring a qualified contractor to install the required treatment.
(b) State conservationists are to develop criteria specifying the conditions for which NRCS will award and administer a contract. Criteria will consider: Type of equipment required, type and amount of conservation treatment required, costs of the required reclamation, needs of the land user, and the applicable cost-share rate. If the Federal share is less than 100 percent, a land user must put up his estimated share of the cost before NRCS awards the contract.
