In honor of Norm Berg’s 80th birthday, we convened a workshop on the future of conservation programs after the farm bill. Speakers addressed public-private partnerships, links between crop insurance and conservation and green payment approaches. Two panels, one featuring farmers and the other, former NRCS Chiefs, followed with their comments.
