Program Description

The Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) is a voluntary conservation program that encourages producers to address resource concerns in a comprehensive manner by:
  • Undertaking additional conservation activities; and
  • Improving, maintaining, and managing existing conservation activities.
CSP is available on Tribal and private agricultural lands and non-industrial private forest land in all 50 States and the Caribbean and Pacific Islands Areas. The program provides equitable access to all producers, regardless of operation size, crops produced, or geographic location. The Secretary of Agriculture has delegated the authority for CSP to the NRCS Chief.

Peter ,
I will forward this to the Maliseet Tribe of Houlton Maine where we did a biochar production demonstration on the reserve last summer.
I will keep you posted.

Ted, I had posted the link in 2010, and it didn't appear to work anymore. Google turned up a new page when I searched for "Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), so this may be more helpful:
