Deadline for Conservation Stewardship Program Approaching
USAgNet - 03/25/2016
The Conservation Stewardship Program, which is USDA's largest conservation program, helps producers voluntarily improve the health and productivity of private and Tribal working lands.
Applications for the CSP are due by March 31 to ensure consideration for enrollment in 2016. Voluntary participation by producers in CSP has made improvements in soil and air quality, clean water conservation, and the wildlife habitats.
Application for CSP involves a survey of producersí land to determine its conservation potential for existing and new activities, which will be used to determine eligibility, ranking and payments. Participation in CSP allows producers to do their part in achieving
higher levels of conservation and adopting new conservation technologies for farms, ranches, and forests.
For more information or to apply for the program, contact your local USDA service center.
