The deadline for farmers and ranchers to apply to participate in the 2012 Conservation Stewardship Program has been extended until Jan. 27 by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, according to the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, which helped develop the program. Farmers and ranchers interested in participating in the program need to submit a two-page application form to their local resources conservation office. The deadline was extended because much of the original sign-up period was scheduled during the year-end holiday season. The program offers technical and financial assistance to farmers and ranchers for conservation and environmental stewardship. Assistance is geared to the active management of existing conservation systems and for starting new activities on land already in agricultural production.
