Farm bill priorities: conservation

Farm and Food
Conservation priorities

Conservation programs guide farmers and ranchers in improving land soil and water quality.

Maintain the strength of our working lands conservation programs, Environmental Quality Incentive Program (EQIP) and Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP).

Preserve funding and continue technical assistance support. With these programs, farmers and ranchers can steward their soil and water resources for the next generation without breaking the bank.

Support farmers and ranchers in expanding conservation practices by making the transition from EQIP to CSP clear and easy.

Manage risk through conservation.

Strengthen links between crop insurance and conservation programs to reward farmers who invest in healthy soil and water.
