Wisconsin CSP 2014 Enhancements

CSP 2014 Enhancement Job Sheets with Wisconsin Supplement Information & Requirements

An “Enhancement" means a type of conservation activity used to treat natural resources and improve conservation performance. Enhancements are installed at a level of management intensity that exceeds the sustainable level for a given resource concern. Enhancements directly related to a practice standard are applied in a manner that exceeds the minimum treatment requirements of the standard.

All of the National CSP 2014 Enhancement Job Sheets have been amended to include Wisconsin Supplement information and requirements. Below is the list of National Enhancement job sheets with Wisconsin Supplement information and requirements for the 2014-1 sign-up, grouped by category.
