Ranking Deadline for CSP Extended to January 27, 2012

Thu, 12 Jan 2012 03:39:10 CST

Ranking Deadline for CSP Extended to January 27, 2012 USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has announced that the ranking period cut-off date for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) has been extended until January 27, 2012. Ron Hilliard, Oklahoma State Conservationist said "This will allow producers a few extra days to do their planning and submit applications to the local NRCS office.   The applications must be received by January 27, 2012 in order to be considered during the first ranking period of 2012."


     CSP is a popular program that provides many conservation benefits including improvement of water and soil quality, wildlife habitat enhancements, and adoption of conservation activities that address the effects of climate change. Eligible lands include cropland, pastureland, rangeland, nonindustrial private forest land and agricultural land under the jurisdiction of an Indian tribe.


     A CSP self-screening checklist is available to help potential applications determine if CSP is suitable for their operation. The checklist highlights basic information about CSP eligibility requirements, contract obligations, and potential payments. It is available from local NRCS offices and on the CSP Web Page. As part of the CSP application process, applicants will work with NRCS field personnel t complete the resource inventory using a Conservation Measurement Tool (CMT). The CMT determines the conservation performance for existing and new conservation activities. The applicant's conservation performance will be used to determine eligibility, ranking, and payments.


     Ron Hilliard, NRCS State Conservationist said, "Since 2009, Oklahoma -NRCS has awarded 1496 contracts to producers covering 1.8 million acres." He encouraged producers to contact their local NRCS office or visit the NRCS National Web Site.
