CSP Sign Up Extended Until June 14

CSP Sign Up Extended Until June 14

Producers now have until June 14 to apply to sign up under the Conservation Stewardship Program as it’s been extended from the original May 31 deadline.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service will provide about $ 175 million for up to 12.6 million acres.

Nebraska NRCS state conservationist Craig Derickson says eligible acres to be enrolled went down a little bit due to the extension of the farm bill last December.

N-R-C-S  program manager John Mayberger says the conservation stewardship program has been a very popular one in Nebraska.

He says C-S-P is mainly for production ag land, crop, pasture and range land and also for non industrial private forest land. To sign up go to your local USDA –NRCS service center or log onto their website. ( ne.nrcs.usda.gov.)
