Soil conservation can be compared to preventive maintenance on a car. to 30 million acres of land planted to surplus commodities. Over its year ife, the Soil Bank l Program diverted million acres to conservation practices on , farms. As part of the Soil Bank, the Acreage Reserve Program also paid farmers to convert lands planted to surplus commodities into conserving uses in , , and

The second part of the Soil Bank was the Conservation Reserve Program, pursuant to which USDA would rent acres out of crop production for a longer term; a program applied to those acres that were considered less productive.

Farmers would enter into the long-term contract, agreeing to establish a conservation cover and not produce any crop on. Conceived at the grass roots and cloaked in the comfort of conservation, the Soil Bank was a short-lived experiment in farm policy that provides lessons aplenty; the progeny of Dust Bowl concepts it was also the forebearer of later conservation policies, most notably the current Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).

The Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) is a cost-share and rental payment program of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Under the program, the government pays farmers to take certain agriculturally used croplands out of production and convert them to vegetative cover, such as cultivated or native bunchgrasses and grasslands, wildlife and pollinators food and shelter plantings.

The Soil Bank (Title I of the Agricultural Act of ) had multiple purposes--reducing production of basic crops, maintaining farm income, and conserving soil.

This paper provides a brief overview of the Soil Bank program and its long term value for conservation. Brief History of the USDA Soil Bank Program.

NRCS' conservation programs help people reduce soil erosion, enhance water supplies, improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat, and reduce damages caused by floods and other natural disasters by providing funding opportunities to agricultural producers and other landowners.

Participation in all conservation programs is voluntary.

The Soil Bank involved both an acreage reserve program that provided rental payments for reduced plantings of certain crops and a conservation reserve program that provided for a long-term land-retirement program, removing 29 million acres from production.

Under the Soil Bank Program, the Agricultural Stabilization and Conservation Service (ASC) entered into three- to ten-year contracts with landowners to set aside planted acres.

The farmers received in return an annual payment based on the quality of the land (average payment was around $12 per acre). The Soil Bank Act also established, in addition to the Conservation Reserve Pro- gram, an Acreage Reserve Program under which farmers signed 1-year agreements in, and to reduce their acreages of wheat, corn, cotton, rice, peanuts, and tobacco below their allot- ments, in return for payments to compen.

The Soil Bank Act of was part of the Agricultural Act of passed by the U.S. Congress. This act created the Soil Bank Program, which removed farmland from production in an effort to reduce large crop surpluses after World War II. Land deposited into the Soil Bank was then converted into conservation use.

The idea for the Soil Bank was taken from legislation from the s dust bowl. pastures, and conservation reserve program (CRP) acres (including fence rows and non-irrigation ditch banks within these areas).
