USDA – NRCS announces Conservation Security Program (CSP) signup is NOW for Montgomery County agricultural producers who want to enhance their current conservation efforts! DEADLINE IS FEBRUARY 4, 2022.
Read the newest press release from NRCS below:
“The Conservation Stewardship Program is a great opportunity for Tennessee producers and foresters to maintain and build on their existing conservation efforts while strengthening their operation,” said Sheldon Hightower, Tennessee NRCS State Conservationist.
CSP offers additional opportunities to expand on existing conservation efforts by offering conservation practices, enhancements, bundles, and other conservation activities.
Producers who decide to enroll in CSP will have a consultation with their local NRCS conservation planner to evaluate their current management system and the natural resources on their land. The NRCS conservation planner will then present a variety of CSP conservation activities for the producer to consider implementing in order to address additional natural resource concerns.
While applications are accepted on a continuous basis, applications must be submitted by February 4, 2022 to be considered for fiscal year 2022 funding.
Through CSP, agricultural producers and forest landowners earn payments for:
- actively maintaining the existing level of conservation based on the land uses included in the contract and NRCS assessment of existing stewardship at the time of enrollment, and
- implementing additional conservation activities.”
