Through the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), agricultural producers, farmers, ranchers and forest landowners may earn payments for actively managing, maintaining, and expanding conservation activities like cover crops, ecologically-based pest management, irrigation management, pollinator and beneficial insect habitat, and prescribed grazing management – all while maintaining active agriculture production on their land. CSP also encourages the adoption of cutting-edge technologies and new management techniques


No one knows more about your land than you do, and no one knows more about conservation than we do. Together we can develop a plan tailored to your land and your goals to help you increase productivity and protect the value of your land. Whether you are looking to improve grazing conditions, increase crop yields, or develop wildlife habitat, we can custom design a CSP plan without a fee, to help you meet those goals. We can help you schedule timely planting of cover crops, develop a grazing plan that will improve your forage base, implement no-till to reduce erosion or manage forested areas in a way that benefits wildlife habitat. If you are already taking steps to improve the condition of the land, chances are CSP can help you find new ways to meet your goals.


To learn more about changes to CSP, eligibility requirements and what opportunities there are to improve your ag operation, attend one of these upcoming workshops or contact District Conservationist, Teri Knight at (702) 407-1400 ext. 104.
