Permalink CFRA Report Examines Efficacy of Conservation Stewardship Program

The Center for Rural Affairs (CFRA) has released a report titled A Farmer's View: A look at the Conservation Stewardship Program. CFRA surveyed Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) participants in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, and South Dakota, states with high rates of participation and significant acreage in CSP. The survey found that CSP participants valued the program because it enhanced their own conservation efforts, and that they saw improvements in their land as a result of the program. The majority of participants were satisfied with the program and felt it should be prioritized in the 2018 Farm Bill.
