Implementing the Conservation Security Program

Description:

This report discusses the Conservation Security Program (CSP), which is a agricultural conservation program created in the 2002 farm bill (P.L. 107-171, §2001).
It provides incentives for farmers to pursue conservation and helps pay for conservation
practices. Unlike some other NRCS programs, it pays for conservation on land that
remains in production and makes eligible a wide range of farm lands (cropland,
pastureland, rangeland, grassland, prairie land, tribal lands, and forested lands incidental to an agricultural operation)
