ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Conservation Security Program in the United States. Authorized in the 2002 farm bill, the Conservation Security Program rewards farmers for environmental stewardship based on three levels or tiers of conservation activities. It reports that the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service officials are advising farmers that if they don't sign up for the Conservation Security Program during the current enrollment period it may be a while before they get the opportunity again. Competition for the latest Conservation Security Program sign-up, which runs until May 27, is likely to be intense. Due to limited funding, the rotational sign-up opportunity to apply comes about once every eight year.
