USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has been seeking public comments on its interim final rule for the Conservation Stewardship Program. CSP, the nation’s largest conservation program in terms of participating land, is designed to help farmers have more robust conservation activities. But they want to remind landowners the deadline to make those comments in January 13th. Here’s NRCS Associate Chief, Kevin Norton.
And Norton invites producers to make public comments on CSP.
NRCS will make available $750 million for interested producers in fiscal 2020. NRCS state offices will announce sign-up periods for CSP in the coming weeks. For more information about CSP, visit your local NRCS field office.
