The USDA sponsors several programs that provide funding to farmers/landowners in establishing a wide range of conservation practices. These include the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP), the Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), and more. These program can provide farmers/landowners with:
- 1-15-year contract terms
- Secure, annual cash rent payment at or above market rates
- 50-100% cost-share of up-front establishment costs of trees, tubes, site prep, and weed control
- Signup incentives ranging from $50-$150 per acre

Windbreaks are trees and shrubs planted along field edges and periodically within fields. Windbreaks increase downwind crop yields, protect crops from damaging winds, reduce soil erosion, clean water, enhance wildlife habitat, manage snow deposition, and sequester carbon.
Riparian buffers are trees, shrubs, and herbaceous plants planted along field edges that are adjacent to water features. Riparian buffers capture excess nutrients, reduce soil erosion, clean water, enhance wildlife habitat, and sequester carbon.
Pollinator habitat uses diverse mixes of native, perennial, flowering plants to help enhance and restore habitat for ecologically and economically significant pollinator species.
