Conservation Practice Adoption Motivations

Census of Horticultre

The Conservation Practice Adoption Motivations Survey (CPAMS) is a joint project between the National Agricultural Statistics Service (NASS) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) aimed at assessing the adoption rates of different conservation practices. There are four different conservation categories which are surveyed: crop practices, grazing practices, confined livestock practices, and forestry practices. Each category will have a questionnaire that has been designed to gather information specific to the practices involved in each category. Survey data will be used to guide the implementation of NRCS programs in the future.
