About this book

Enrolling over 30 million acres, the U.S. Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is the largest conservation program in the United States. Under the guidelines of the CRP, the federal government pays farmers to stop farming their land in the hopes of achieving a variety of conservation goals, including the reduction of soil erosion, improvement of water quality, and creation of wildlife habitat. In this book, the author explores the role of information in the policy cycle as it relates to the CRP.

Media reviews
'A beautifully written study of an important program that has not received sufficient academic attention. The Conservation Reserve Program has become an enormously important force for preventing non-point source pollution, providing wildlife habitat, and even reducing emissions of greenhouse gases...Conserving Data does a superb job of explaining the political and economic forces that have shaped the evolutionary path of the CRP.' Robert V. Percival, Director, Environmental Law Program, University of Maryland School of Law
