$1m grant towards hill country erosion control

5:47 am on 10 July 2009

A $1 million Government grant has been made towards an erosion control programme on hill country farms in south Taranaki.

The grant from MAF will provide about a third of the funding in the four year programme, with the rest coming from the Taranaki Regional Council and landowners.

The council says farmers in the Waitotara valley will be the main recipients.
