Conservation Stewardship Program Asheville and Beyond . I was so interested to read that Agriculture Deputy Secretary Kathleen Merrigan this month (August, 2009) has announced that the U.S. Department of Agriculture will begin continuous sign-up for the new Conservation Stewardship Program.

Congress capped the annual acreage enrollment at 12.769 million acres for each fiscal year nationwide.
This new Program encourages agricultural and forestry producers to maintain existing conservation activities and possibly even adopt additional ones on their operations. "This program will help the nation's agricultural and forestry producers reach greater levels of conservation performance, which will help protect our land and water," Merrigan said. "The conservation benefits derived from maintaining and enhancing natural resources will improve the quality of soil and water, assist in addressing global climate change, and encourage environmentally responsible energy production."
To apply potential participants can use a self-screening checklist to determine whether the new program is suitable for them or their operation. For information about the CSP, including eligibility requirements, producers can log on to www.nrcs.usda.gov/new_cspor visit their local NRCS field office.
