Costs and Implications of Consevation Compliance

The costs of conservation compliance progarm (CCP) to farmers in U.S. are to range from .105 to 2.88 billion dollars for 23 million acres enrolled in the conservation reserve program (CRP), and from .0866 to 2.66 billion dollars for 40 million acres in the CRP if soil erosion from the highly erodibel cropland is to limited to the tolerance (T) level. The exact CCP costs will depend on what extent the economic hardship exemption is given to farmers.
