Conservation in the Farm Bill

The presentation in this session of American Farmland Trust's Farmland, Food and Livable Communities Conference examines the consolidation of and changes to conservation programs in the 2014 Farm Bill. How can these programs be even more effective in producing results on the land? Find out how the new law affects voluntary conservation programs like the Conseration Reserve Program (CRP) and the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), and learn about the new Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP). Learn about changes to conservation compliance, farmer eligibility for crop insurance premium subsidies and related benefits for soil and water conservation.
