Did some 20 years ago through the continuous CRP program. Cost share was 90% and at the time you could sign up for ten or fifteen years with an annual payment. The key to getting a good waterway is having a contractor that knows what they are doing.
Recently it has caught on to seed rye in the fall in reworked ditches or areas prone to gully erosion. In the spring they plant through these temporary waterways and terminate with the burndown. Doesn't take a lot of cover to make a big difference.
