Conservation Stewardship Program Sign Up Extended

The Natural Resources Conservation Service has extended the deadline for new Conservation Stewardship Program enrollments for fiscal year 2014.  The extension until February 7 will allow more landowners to apply for C-S-P.  South Dakota NRCS CSP Coordinator Jessica Michalski says C-S-P has been a very valuable and popular program among South Dakota’s producers.

Michalski says there are many enhancements South Dakota producers have accomplished through C-S-P that cover a wide variety of improvements.

Michalski says they’re still awaiting funding allocations for C-S-P for 2014 from USDA. She says last year, South Dakota enrolled close to 900,000 acres in the program. Michalski says interested landowners should stop at their local NRCS office to sign up.
