MADISON - Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced Feb. 4 that $150 million in funding is available for agricultural producers through the Conservation Stewardship Program, USDA's largest conservation program that helps producers voluntarily improve the health and productivity of private and Tribal working lands. USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service plans to add an estimated 10 million acres to the rolls of CSP during fiscal 2016. The Conservation Stewardship Program is one of the most popular programs with producers because it results in real change on the ground by boosting soil and air quality, conserving clean water and enhancing wildlife habitat.
