Extend retention of captured rainfall to provide late winter water habitat for migratory waterfowl and shorebirds

USDA NRCS | CSP-E646138Z2

Signup Deadline: February 1, 2019
Harvested and idled agricultural lands, notably those occurring within rice rotations, contain high densities of residual (i.e., waste) grain and natural seeds following harvest. In addition, flooded conditions provide access for waterfowl and wading birds and promote establishment of aquatic invertebrate populations, thus providing protein-rich food sources for shorebirds as well as waterfowl and wading birds. 
 

CSP deadline for all states is May 10, 2019.
