The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) has helped South Dakota farmers achieve conservation goals on their operations for two decades.

Administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), CSP provides financial and technical assistance for producers to maintain agricultural production on their land, and simultaneously address resource concerns with conservation practices.

In 2021, 337,167 acres in South Dakota were enrolled in CSP, including both newly enrolled and renewed acres.
