“Additionality” is achieved when a conservation program payment results in actions that improve environmental performance of the farm and that would not have occurred without the payment. ERS estimates additionality in various programs.
Errata: On April 20, the estimate for adoption of soil conservation structures for payment farms in Table 4 on page 16 was corrected. The entry for "Estimated without payment" for soil conservation structures is 0.18.
