crop producers and the Conservation Security Program
The Conservation Security Program (CSP) offers an opportunity for
farmers to participate in a long term stewardship program that helps
sustain the conservation practices that they have already adopted
and provides additional incentives for more intensive conservation
efforts on their operations. The application and ranking process
are significantly different form EQIP and are outlined in an NRCS
Fact Sheet (PDF file) For

programs, participation in EQIP is particularly valuable in being
eligible for and in making successful application to CSP.
