Abstract

The creation of the Conservation Security Program (CSP) was greeted with enthusiasm by farmers. This project looked at how well CSP worked out in practice.

Key Question

What role can farmers plan in the policy arena?

Findings

There is no more effective spokesperson for sustainable agriculture than a sustainable farmer. The farmers also became better aware of the time-consuming and convoluted process of law- and rulemaking. They now better understand how policy change occurs and how powerful are the forces for the existing agricultural policy system.
