Environmental Working Group Wants Crop Insurance Tied To Conservation

Environmental Working Group Wants Crop Insurance Tied To Conservation

 

The Environmental Working Group is disappointed but not surprised at the decision by the American Farm Bureau to oppose tying crop insurance payments to conservation compliance. EWG’s Senior Vice President Craig Cox says tying the two not only makes sense but would curtail having highly erodible lands torn up for tillage and would keep crop insurance payments from being abused.

Cox also doesn’t see an added layer of red tape being created by tying conservation compliance with crop insurance.

Cox says it’s a step backwards to keep crop insurance from being connected to conservation compliance.
