WASHINGTON – USDA is extending the deadline to Nov. 8, 2019, for eligible agriculture producers to enroll in the Conservation Stewardship Program Grassland Conservation Initiative, which was created by the 2018 farm bill. The original deadline was Oct. 25, 2019. This program is available to producers with base acreage that has been in grass or grasslands over a nine-year period, rather than planted with commodity crops.
Eligible producers received letters from USDA’s Farm Service Agency earlier this year, which included information on how to apply through field offices of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.
