Sodbuster

Business / Agriculture / Sodbuster: A program created by Title 12 of the Food Security Act of 1985 designed to discourage the plowing up of erosion-prone grasslands for use as cropland. If such highly erodible land is used for crop production without proper conservation measures as laid out in a conservation plan, a producer may lose eligibility to participate in farm programs. Sodbuster provisions remain in effect under the FAIR Act of 1996.
