San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District


About

The Ag Burn Alternatives Grant Program provides incentives to chip or shred agricultural material from orchard/vineyard removals as an alternative to the open burning of the agricultural materials. In addition, the Program provides incentives for the purchase of new agricultural wood-chipping equipment to chip orchard and vineyard removals located within the San Joaquin Valley.

The orchard/vineyard removal option provides incentives to commercial agricultural operations located within Valley Air District boundaries to chip or shred agricultural material from orchard/vineyard removals. The material must be used for soil incorporation or land application on grower property or off-site on other agricultural land. Chipped material may also be for other off-site beneficial re-use as an alternative to the open burning of the agricultural materials.
