CSP is the largest working lands conservation program, allowing owners to keep their land in production.
CSP is focused on implementing conservation on the entire farm.
Contract payments start at $1,500.
There are more than 200 conservation enhancements available through CSP, including cover crops, buffer strips, wildlife habitat development and more.
Interested farmers and ranchers must submit applications by March 2 to be considered for this year’s sign-up. To apply, producers should stop by their local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office and submit the initial application materials.
