Record number of producers certified under 2014 farm bill conservation compliance

The USDA announced that more than 98.2% of producers have met the 2014 farm bill requirement to certify conservation compliance to qualify for crop insurance premium support payments.

Secretary Tom Vilsack said, “This overwhelming response is a product of USDA’s extensive outreach and the commitment of America’s farmers to be stewards of the land. By investing in both American farmers and the health of our productive lands, we are ensuring future generations have access to fertile soil, healthy food supplies and a strong rural economy.”
