Conservation Stewardship Program
February 3, 2018
MFAI has long supported the USDA’s Conservation Stewardship Program, a voluntary program that rewards farmers who are already practicing conservation and supports their doing even more, with payments. NRCS has announced that the 2018 deadline for farmers to submit new applications for CSP enrollment is March 2. A second deadline will be announced in a few weeks for expiring contracts to renew. The institute encourages farmers to schedule a meeting soon with the conservation staff at the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS) office in their county.
