Conservation Practices With Greater Benefits to Farmers and Ranchers Have Higher EQIP Completion Rates

In the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), farmers and ranchers sign contracts to implement selected conservation practices on specific areas of their operations. After the practices are completed, the participants receive financial assistance payments. Sometimes practices are not completed as planned, and the financial assistance is reallocated to other practices or other contracts. Recent ERS research found that practices that are less likely to be completed tend to have higher additionality, the estimated percentage of participants who adopted the practice only because of financial incentives.
