What is CEAP?
The 2013 National Resources Inventory (NRI) – Conservation Effects Assessment Project (CEAP) survey collects information from agricultural producers in the California Bay-Delta watershed area, with a primary focus on the Sacramento River Watershed, the San Joaquin River Watershed, and the Tulare Lake Basin Watershed, about farming and conservation practices on cultivated and non-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.
