Stewardship deadline Friday

USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) State Conservationist Salvador Salinas reminds agriculture producers that the ranking period cut-off date for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is Friday, Jan. 13, 2012. “CSP gives conservation minded producers the ability to apply and build on their current stewardship efforts,” says Mr. Salinas.  “Farmers and ranchers actively engaged in natural resource conservation practice have the opportunity to earn financial rewards through CSP.”.
