The Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill) authorized the Conservation Stewardship Program. Congress re- named and revamped the former Con- servation Security Program completely to improve its availability and appeal to agricultural and forestry producers. The Conservation Stewardship Pro- gram will be offered in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the Pacific and Caribbean areas through continu- ous sign-ups with announced cut-off application dates for ranking periods. The maximum annual enrollment is capped at nearly 12.8 million acres na- tionwide. NRCS administers CSP, a voluntary conservation program de- signed to encourage agricultural and forestry producers to adopt additional conservation practices and improve, maintain and manage existing ones. To apply for the newly revamped CSP, individual producers, legal enti- ties and Indian tribes will be encour- aged to use a self-screening checklist first to determine whether the new pro- environmental performance to be achieved by a producer implementing and maintaining conservation activi- ties. The conservation performance es- timated by the CMT will be used to rank applications. Another major change in the pro- gram is the method of payments. CSP will offer two possible types of pay- ments-annual and supplemental. The annual payment will be established using the conservation performance es- timated by the CMT and calculated by land use type for enrolled eligible land. A supplemental payment is also avail- able to participants who also adopt a resource-conserving crop rotation. CSP payments by law will average $18/acre or less. The annual payment limitation for a person or legal entity is $40,000. A person or legal entity cannot exceed $200,000 for all contracts entered into during any five-year period. Individual producers, legal entities and Indian tribes must meet several requirements to submit a Conservation Stewardship Program application including; being an operator in the USDA farm records comply with Adjusted Gross Income provisions. Eligible lands include crop- land, grassland, prairie, improved pas- tureland, non-industrial private forestland-a new land use for the pro- gram-and agricultural land under the jurisdiction of an Indian tribe. Land enrolled in the Conservation Security Program, Conservation Re- serve Program, Grasslands Reserve Program and Wetlands Reserve Pro- gram are ineligible for the new Con- seJ:vation Stewardship Program. The new CSP is very different from the old Conservation Security Pro- gram. Under the old program, produc- ers were eligible if they were in the selected watersheds. All contracts under the old CSP will be honored until the end of the contract term.
