State and federal officials announced Friday that they are sweetening payments to Maryland farmers in hopes of taking cropland out of production to help clean the Chesapeake Bay. Meeting on a farm near Westminster, Gov. Martin O'Malley and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack signed an agreement to funnel $198 million in federal funds to the state over the next 15 years. The money will allow the government to increase payments to farmers to plant trees rather than crops along streams.
