Through his enrollment in CSP, Will has implemented a number of conservation practices on his operation—Tri-C Farms Inc. in Hardy, Nebraska—to increase the profitability of his farm and become a better steward of natural resources. Over the years, these practices have made a significant contribution to his conservation goals.
"Personally, we participate for the efficiency gains and profitability, but the underlying benefit is to protect the water and soil," Will said.
Administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, CSP provides financial and technical assistance to producers seeking a holistic approach to conservation, while maintaining production on their farms or ranches.
In our CSP Producer Spotlight series, we highlight how Will and others are expanding on their existing conservation efforts through practice enhancements that help them implement methods of farming and ranching that provide an even greater benefit to natural resources, including air, water, and soil.
