What is CEAP?

The 2012 National Resources Inventory (NRI) – Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) survey collects information from agricultural producers in the Western Lake Erie Basin and the Des Moines River Basin about farming and conservation practices on cultivated cropland. Conservation programs help farmers and rural communities maintain productive farmland, protect the environment and preserve clean water in their region. The information collected through the CEAP survey is vital to help determine what resources farmers may need to further protect the soil, water and related resources in their area and to document on-farm conservation accomplishments.
