Conservation Compliance and Producers in the Corn Belt: Comparisons Across Three Surveys

Project Period:

15 months 1995-01-01 - 1996-03-01

Principal Investigator:

J. Dixon Esseks, Northern Illinois University; and Steve Kraft, Southern Illinois University

We conducted the third in a series of surveys of producers in the Corn Belt concerning their opinions of conservation compliance plans between January and February 1995. We called a random sample of 1,000 farmers and compared the 1995 results with those of the previous surveys in 1992 and 1993. The report's findings helped preserve conservation compliance provisions.
