Landowners interested in making public comments on how to improve conservation practice standards that support programs like the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), are reminded you have until April 25 to do so. USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is currently accepting public input on existing national conservation practice standards as part of implementing the 2018 Farm Bill.
Over 150 conservation practices are available for farmers, ranchers and forest landowners to help meet their business and natural resource needs on their working lands. NRCS helps producers cover part of the costs for implementing these practices, which includes guidelines for planning, designing, installing, operating and maintaining conservation practices.
To learn more about NRCS programs simply stop by your local USDA Service Center. For more information about this public comment period, go to the Federal Register at federalregister.gov. But again, you have until April 25th to make comments concerning programs like EQIP and CSP.
