    1. Diesel Emission Reductions in the USDA-NRCS: CSP and EQIP Greg Johnson1 and John Beyer2 USDA-NRCS 1WNTSC, Air Quality Team, Portland 2State Air Quality Specialist, Fresno

    2. Conservation Security Program (CSP) 18 watersheds in FY04 202 additional watersheds in FY05 Primary focus on rewarding best stewards of the land: soil and water conservation Additional focus on air resources and energy: enhancements Several of these will directly encourage activities that will reduce diesel emissions

    4. 6 CSP Air Resource Enhancement Goals Reducing particulate matter (PM10, PM2.5) Reducing odors Reducing airborne chemical drift Reducing ammonia emissions Reducing Ozone precursors (VOCs, NOx) Reducing greenhouse gas emissions (CO2, CH4, N2O) and increasing carbon sequestration

    5. Specific CSP Air Resource & Energy Enhancements Reducing Diesel Emissions Utilization of biodiesel Reduced tillage or no-till Reduction of travel Combining and/or reducing field operations Reduced pesticide applications through use of forecast system

    6. CSP Energy Enhancement: Utilization of Biofuels for Reductions in Diesel Emissions Biodiesel Ethanol Enhancement Payment: $25.00 per 100 gallons actual biofuel used on-farm per year

    7. Example 500 gallons B10 biodiesel used on-farm per year (10% bio) Enhancement Payment: 500 gal x 0.10 = 100 gal bio 100 gal x $25/100 gal = $25 per year

    8. EQIP Diesel Engine Replacement California only18 ozone non-attainment counties only for FY2005 Replacement of irrigation pumps to Tier II or Tier III diesel, or electric, propane or natural gas engine 50% cost share, $26K max Tier II, $35K max Tier III
