USDA Rewards Organic Producers for Conservation Activities
This article was first printed in the Sept/Oct 2009 issue of the Organic Broadcaster, published by the Midwest Organic and Sustainable Education Service.
The 2009 farm bill recognized that natural resource conservation and organic agriculture share many of the same goals. Two farm bill programs, EQIP (Environmental Quality Incentive Program) and CSP (Conservation Stewardship Program) specifically offer special cash benefits directed toward organic farmers. These programs recognize and reward farmers for the beneficial activities they maintain which provide a healthy environment for people and wildlife. The vast majority of our land is privately owned and these programs are a way to help these landowners “do the right thing” for natural resource conservation and protection.
