NRCS Conservation Stewardship Program Enhancement Summary

National

NRCS's natural resources conservation programs help people reduce soil erosion, enhance water supplies, improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat, and reduce damages caused by floods and other natural disasters. Public benefits include enhanced natural resources that help sustain agricultural productivity and environmental quality while supporting continued economic development, recreation, and scenic beauty.

To learn more see CSP and CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

Conservation Practices Related to Cropland Soil Quality

The following table includes practices that are related to Cropland Soil Quality Management. The six components of soil quality management are: enhancing organic matter, avoiding excessive tillage, managing pests and nutrients efficiently, preventing soil compaction, keeping the ground covered, and diversifying cropping systems. Choosing specific practices within each component depends on the situation since different types of soil respond differently to the same practice. Each combination of soil type and land use calls for a different set of practices to enhance soil quality. Note that only practices applied on cropland or hay land are included.

Notes:
• Data Source: USDA-NRCS, National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD), October 2020.
• Land unit acres may be counted multiple times across practices and fiscal years.
• CSP practices and enhancements are applied under the CSP program or the CSP component of the RCPP program starting in FY 2017.
• Totals over detailed enhancements may not exactly match totals in main table due to rounding.
To learn more about CSP bundles and enhancements, please see CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

*Count in this table refers to the number of records in the National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD). NPAD contains a record for each time a practice is applied to a planning land unit. Counts may differ from practice counts based on contract items in the ProTracts database because each contract item in ProTracts can cover multiple planning land units.

Conservation Practices Related to Cropland Soil Health & Sustainability

The following table includes practices that are related to Cropland Soil Health & Sustainability. This measure is intended as a step-wise measure to show progress towards implementing a Soil Health Management System (SHMS). A SHMS is defined as a collection of NRCS conservation practices that focuses on maintaining or enhancing soil health by addressing four soil health management principles: minimize disturbance, maximize soil cover, maximize biodiversity and maximize presence of living roots. Note that only practices applied on cropland are included. Also at least two eligible conservation practices or a Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) bundle must be applied during the fiscal year. Eligible conservation practices are those that indicate progress toward a SHMS and include: Conservation Crop Rotation, Residue and Tillage Management (No Till and Reduced Till), Cover Crop, and corresponding CSP activities and bundles. Some CSP bundles count as two eligible practices.

Conservation Practices Related to Cropland Soil Health Management System (SHMS)

The following table includes practices that are related to Cropland SHMS or cropland on which a system of practices to sustain or improve soil health was applied during the fiscal year. A SHMS is defined as a collection of NRCS conservation practices that focuses on maintaining or enhancing soil health by addressing four soil health management principles: minimize disturbance, maximize soil cover, maximize biodiversity and maximize presence of living roots. Note that only practices applied on cropland are included. Three eligible core conservation practices must be in place. They are: Conservation Crop Rotation, Residue and Tillage Management (No Till or Reduced Till), Cover Crop, and corresponding CSP activities and bundles. Some CSP bundles fulfil the requirements of a Cropland SHMS.

Notes:
• Data Source: USDA-NRCS, National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD), October 2020.
• Land unit acres may be counted multiple times across practices and fiscal years.
• CSP practices and enhancements are applied under the CSP program or the CSP component of the RCPP program starting in FY 2017.
• Totals over detailed enhancements may not exactly match totals in main table due to rounding.
To learn more about CSP bundles and enhancements, please see CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

*Count in this table refers to the number of records in the National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD). NPAD contains a record for each time a practice is applied to a planning land unit. Counts may differ from practice counts based on contract items in the ProTracts database because each contract item in ProTracts can cover multiple planning land units.

Conservation Practices Related to Fish & Wildlife Habitat

The following table includes practices that are related to Fish & Wildlife Habitat Management. The environment that NRCS helps its clients conserve, maintain, and improve is also habitat for fish & wildlife and other biological resources. While every practice and management action taken on the land has some effect on biological resources, the following practices are specifically related to fish & wildlife habitat.

Notes:
• Data Source: USDA-NRCS, National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD), October 2020.
• Land unit acres may be counted multiple times across practices and fiscal years.
• CSP practices and enhancements are applied under the CSP program or the CSP component of the RCPP program starting in FY 2017.
• Totals over detailed enhancements may not exactly match totals in main table due to rounding.
To learn more about CSP bundles and enhancements, please see CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

*Count in this table refers to the number of records in the National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD). NPAD contains a record for each time a practice is applied to a planning land unit. Counts may differ from practice counts based on contract items in the ProTracts database because each contract item in ProTracts can cover multiple planning land units.

Conservation Practices Related to Grazing Land Conservation

The following table includes practices that are related to Grazing Land Conservation. NRCS is committed to conserving and enhancing private grazing land resources. This includes conservation practices which: conserve and improve wildlife habitat on private grazing land; conserve and improve fish habitat and aquatic systems through grazing land conservation treatment; protect and improve water quality; improve the dependability and consistency of water supplies; and identify and manage weed, noxious weed, and brush encroachment problems. Note that only practices applied on grazed range, grazed forest, native and naturalized pasture, or pasture land are included.

Notes:
• Data Source: USDA-NRCS, National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD), October 2020.
• Land unit acres may be counted multiple times across practices and fiscal years.
• CSP practices and enhancements are applied under the CSP program or the CSP component of the RCPP program starting in FY 2017.
• Totals over detailed enhancements may not exactly match totals in main table due to rounding.
To learn more about CSP bundles and enhancements, please see CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

*Count in this table refers to the number of records in the National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD). NPAD contains a record for each time a practice is applied to a planning land unit. Counts may differ from practice counts based on contract items in the ProTracts database because each contract item in ProTracts can cover multiple planning land units.

Conservation Practices Related to Irrigation Efficiency

The following table includes practices that are related to Irrigation Efficiency. The goal of these practices is to assist in properly designing, installing and maintaining irrigation systems to ensure uniform and efficient distribution of water, thereby conserving water and protecting water resources. Note that pumping plant (533) installation is only counted when applied on cropland or hay land.

Conservation Practices Related to Water Quality

The following table includes practices that are related to Water Quality. Water quality is an indicator of the health of our environment and reflects what occurs on the land. The primary water quality issues from agriculture are sediment, nutrients, pesticides, pathogens, and in some parts of the country, salinity. Using conservation practices to improve land in an environmentally sound manner will result in better water quality for drinking, recreation, wildlife, fisheries and industry.

Notes:
• Data Source: USDA-NRCS, National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD), October 2020.
• Land unit acres may be counted multiple times across practices and fiscal years.
• CSP practices and enhancements are applied under the CSP program or the CSP component of the RCPP program starting in FY 2017.
• Totals over detailed enhancements may not exactly match totals in main table due to rounding.
To learn more about CSP bundles and enhancements, please see CSP FY 2019 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2017-FY 2019 and CSP FY 2020 Enhancements and Bundles for FY 2020 data.

*Count in this table refers to the number of records in the National Planning and Agreements Database (NPAD). NPAD contains a record for each time a practice is applied to a planning land unit. Counts may differ from practice counts based on contract items in the ProTracts database because each contract item in ProTracts can cover multiple planning land units.
