Title: Conservation Compliance 

The interim rule implemented mandatory changes to the conservation compliance regulations in 7 CFR part 12 as required by the Agricultural Act of 2014 (the 2014 Farm Bill). The regulations require participants in most USDA programs to comply with conservation compliance measures on any land that is highly erodible or that is considered a wetland. The final rulemaking publication for this initiative will address issues in response to the public comments submitted in response to the interim rule.
