Signups are now open for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), which has helped farmers and ranchers achieve conservation goals on their operations for nearly two decades.
Administered by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), CSP offers technical and financial assistance to enhance conservation over a five-year contract period, with the option to renew. Interested producers should reach out to their local NRCS office, which can be found here: offices.sc.egov.usda.gov/locator/app.
Over the past few months, we’ve been researching the impacts of CSP in Nebraska and Iowa. We discovered that the two states are leading the nation in multiple aspects.
