Conservation Stewardship Program Sign-Up Begins – Farmer Applications Due by January 17

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has announced the start of the 2014 enrollment process for farmers and ranchers who want to participate in the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).

Producers interested in enrolling in CSP for the 2014 fiscal year must submit their initial applications to NRCS by January 17, 2014.

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) helped develop CSP and has followed its progress closely.  In conjunction with NRCS’s announcement, NSAC issued a press release and an Information Alert on the 2014 CSP sign-up.  The Information Alert walks through the basic timeline and steps of the enrollment process and provides additional resources for those producers interested in digging deeper.

CSP is an innovative working lands conservation program that rewards farmer and ranchers for the conservation and environmental benefits they produce.  CSP offers technical and financial assistance to farmers for adopting and maintaining high standards of resource conservation and environmental stewardship.  Assistance is geared toward both the active management of existing conservation systems and the implementation of new conservation activities (called enhancements) on land in agricultural production.
