SWP Online Self-Assessment Tool

Short description:

In partnership with US Department of Food and Agriculture's (USDA's) Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), SWP workbook criteria and practices have been matched to corresponding NRCS standards and practices for the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP). The online system will reflect these links so that individual grower assessment reports specify relevant NRCS practices and associated EQIP cost-share opportunities and information. This advance in customized reporting will benefit NRCS and CSWA by highlighting NRCS support and technical capabilities, increasing grower awareness and use of EQIP, and simplifying and streamlining application and conservation planning processes. As a result, growers will be better enabled to advance practices for protecting natural resources and progressing their performance in sustainability. The on-line reporting capacity and new Air Quality Chapter are key components of a three-year air and water quality project that is funded by a Conservation Innovation Grant from USDA's NRCS.
