Image: Ellen Walter, Resources for the FutureOctober 6, 2010

Encompassing over 30 million acres, the U.S. Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is the largest land preservation program in the United States. As it generates conservation payments for more than 400,000 farms, the CRP also prompts many questions about the design and efficacy of environmental policy. How have changes in the way information is gathered and provided affected CRP operations? What do we know about the environmental impacts of the CRP? And how are conservation payments likely to fare in future farm spending debates?
