MONROE - The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service is accepting new applications and renewal applications for the Conservation Stewardship Program. NRCS accepts applications for CSP throughout the year, but producers should submit applications by March 31 to USDA Service Centers to ensure they are considered for enrollment in 2016. Participants with existing CSP contracts that will expire Dec. 31 have the option to renew their contracts for an additional five years if they agree to adopt additional activities to achieve higher levels of conservation on their lands.
