AGRIBUSINESS: CEAP Program To Help Protect Resources
The USDA is asking farmers about their conservation practices. The Conservation Effects Assessment Project or CEAP survey will collect producer information on farming and conservation practices on cultivated cropland.
This information will help USDA determine what farmers need to further protect soil, water and related resources.
USDA is careful to stress that information collected by the National Agricultural Statistics Service is entirely confidential.
NASS will gather information through January 2013.
